I regret to inform our thousands of dedicated alumni, students,  friends, and followers that I have decided to  terminate my 26-year business relationship with Rescue 3 International technical rescue courses. 

 I thank the many mentors along the way who taught me so much about technical rescue and  encouraged me to pursue my passion of water rescue.
