Swiftwater and Flood Rescue Technician Course
This past weekend 4 members of the squad attended a very intense and realistic Swiftwater and Flood Rescue Technician Course in Montgomery Co, VA. This course, through Rescue 3 International was very challenging, however very educational and we learned a lot of skills to bring home. The New River was well above “normal” stages for the entirety of the course (as pictured in the graph). Thanks to Riner Volunteer Rescue Squad and Longshop McCoy Fire & Rescue for the hospitality during the course. Our Instructor Steve Forren was amazing!
