Upcoming Swiftwater & Flood Rescue Technician Advanced Courses

2019 SRT A

SRT Advanced is an intensive and physically demanding course! The initial emphasis of this course is on self-rescue skills and covers all of the skills taught SRT Unit I.  In addition, other skills include:

  • Rescuing and extricating an accident victim from the water.
  • Rescue swimming in swiftwater and maneuvering so as to negotiate river hazards and obstacles at various water levels.
  • Navigating inflatable boats by paddle and on tether .
  • Understanding swiftwater rescue operations organization and the response of the victim.
  • Utilizing rope rescue gear applicable to swiftwater rescue.
  • Crossing shallow and fast-moving water utilizing various techniques.
  • Crossing deep, fast-moving water utilizing basic climbing gear, small boats, and combinations of the two.
  • This course provides the fundamentals of swiftwater rescue and is recommended for anyone who may be called upon to affect in-water rescues.

This course is the second class needed for personnel wanting to meet the requirements of the NFPA 1670 Standard and the NFPA 1006 Standard at the Technician level for water. This course takes the student who has completed Swiftwater Rescue Technician Unit 1™ (SRT1) beyond the emphasis of self-rescue and further concentrates on the victim’s rescue. This is done by integrating the SRT I  techniques into more difficult technical swiftwater situations.

SRTA is taught over 3 days with four to six hours of classroom followed by three and one-half days of hands-on skill development. There is a mock night river rescue scenario, as well as, a raft trip and swimming session which allows rescuers to fine tune their guiding skills and advanced swimming techniques in a higher degree of water classifications.

Night rescue swimming and night rafting operations are conducted within this course!!!
