Swiftwater & Flood Rescue Technician Series



Course Overview

In an effort to deliver swiftwater and technical rescue throughout the Southeastern United States, we are pleased to announce the offering of the Rescue 3 International Swiftwater & Flood Rescue Technician Unit I (SRT I) course to any fire & rescue, law enforcement, military, industrial or recreational provider.

The Rescue 3 International SFRT I course addresses various aspects of swiftwater and flood emergencies with a focus upon rescuer safety and team efficiency during these types of emergencies. This course is a physically intensive, 30-hour class that includes classroom instruction followed by two days of developing and practicing water survival & rescue skill sets..

Emphasis of this course is based upon self-rescue skills and meets and/or exceeds the skills taught within N.F.P.A. 1006 Awareness and Operations for swiftwater rescue. Other topics include an in-depth analysis of hydrology, handling hazards and obstacles, rescue equipment familiarization, utilizing basic rope systems, conducting in-water contact rescues, and much more. Information from this course is applicable to anyone confronted with potential water rescue, as well as, the possibility of self-rescue.

This is a physically and mentally challenging course! Those students with phobias of swimming class I & II rapids, extremely cold water (35 degrees), or extensive health problems (heart, trauma, respiratory…) are discouraged from attending this course!

Students will receive a course manual, skill sheet, test, certificate of completion, I.D. card, and patch during the class.
