Out of interest Matt, (and there'll be no criticism whatever the answer ) what training do you guys use for inland / swiftwater situations?

Only ask as I've done a few programmes for Police and Fire Service which may be of interest to you...

Simon
We dont play around with anything fast moving is the simple answer, flooded fords. the odd car in ditch....or something yes but we dont do swiftwater rescue as such, any water deeper than we are tall and the flood boat goes in - basically, at no time are crews put in to fast flowing water.

Other inland incidents are trained for in house and as said before MOD fire service etc.

Would be interested to hear more about the programms though

Cheers

Matt

Matt,

I'd always recommend to any organisation that anyone going into water more than calf deep should attend at least a one day course - Rescue 3 International do a good one, as do some independent trainers (self included).

Drop me a PM with your email on and I'll send you some details.

Would be in Jan or Feb, but I'm sure we could arrange something useful which I may even be tempted to call a charitable donation lol.
