I'm excited to share that Don Martin from River Recreation will again be providing our 2023 River Safety and Rescue Training class.
Location and time will be provided the week prior; location will be based on river flows.
There will be lots of standing around and multiple river swims, so please ensure you dress appropriately; a drysuit is mandatory, as well as full PPE. Bring lunch, snacks, hot drinks and plenty of water to stay hydrated.
We would appreciate your feedback after the course as this enables us to tweak future course content to ensure your needs are met.
May 13th (9am - 5pm)
Maximum 11 participants
The course will prioritize life saving techniques. The focus will be on rescue equipment typically carried whilst on the river, and how it should be used in a rescue situation.
Options if time permits:
All rescue gear you carry in your kayak (throw rope, carabiners, pulley, prusik loop, webbing, etc.)
Lunch. Please dress warmly: you will be getting wet and likely to swim.
$139 (Full price)
$89 ($50 reimbursement if you lead just 1 WKC Trip in 2023)
