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