Austere, Survival and Disaster Medicine
The new Standup Paddleboard class and Swift water training takes flight starting late winter of 2013. This class is offered to civilians to promote self rescue and buddy rescue, to life guards and to the fire rescue community as another rescue methodology that supplements or augments swift water rescue. The civilian course is a two day course with introduction, skills, water rescue for self and buddy and integration into assisting local resources as needed during floods. The extension program for the professional life guards and fire rescue includes another full day of ropes, knots and alternate methodologies using SUPs. This course packs a wallop and is more than just fun, its a way of life. Come surf and rescue! The 2013 locations are as followed and the class dates are to be announced. Any one interested in attending should sign up now! Class sizes are limited to 16. Course cost for two days is $80 and the three day course is $150.
