Service Description

Moving water, contamination, uncooperative people and animals, power lines, lack of resources and many other factors can make flooding into populous very dangerous. It is always best to evacuate well before flooding impedes your escape. However, that’s not always possible and local emergency services are often taxed creating long evacuation times and limited rescue capabilities. The newest addition to our Marine Safety Elements program, this workshop is designed to provide basic flood escape and neighbor assistance boating skills and information for civilians who decide that because of family, farm, or other challenge, it may be necessary for a civilian to remain behind until escape may require evacuation by a personal boat. Each operator or team will participate in a variety of skills demonstrating precision, anticipation, victim recovery and control in lake like conditions. In moving water, you will demonstrate mastery of basic scene assessment, handling, throttling, team work, precision movement and control in a natural weir. This weir provides excellent experience as the hydrology seen is very similar to the hydrology you would expect to see during a levee, lock, dam or floodgate failure or other swift moving water through populous. These are many of the same skills we have taught to area fire, law enforcement and EMS teams across the state Please see the flyer for this topic on our flyer page. $50 deposit paid to the secure site, reserves your spot/materials. Max numbers and minimum numbers apply. No horseshoes or inflatable vests for training. personal protective equipment will be provided at no additional cost
