How Whitewater Rescue Teams Are Trained | What It Takes

Swiftwater rescuers must complete a rigorous training course in order to be fully prepared to rescue individuals who have fallen victim to fast-moving water. The Swiftwater Safety Institute teaches rescue agencies and river guides the skills they need to save the lives of people caught in deadly currents. We traveled to Moab, Utah where the Swiftwater Safety Institute conducted a 3-day training course on the Colorado River. The course teaches the proper way to react to dangerous situations including foot entrapments and raft flips, training students on handling tools like a throw bag to help bring a casualty to shore.

  • Really didn't think I'd be saying this but investing first with the right link and professional should be the first on every new person's mind as trying it out yourself would lead to serious loss nd u can avoid dat like I did invsting wit @lisa_upfx o'. n l'g

  • I feel the fastest and safest way to invest/build wealth is by having a diversified investment. if one investment performs poorIy over a certain period, other investments may perform better over that same period, reducing the potential losses of your investment portfolio from concentrating aII your capital under one type of investment., that's what i do investing in forex/crypto with lisa_upfx 0',n l' g

  • I watch this some IDworldsrs who do clean rivers, magnet fishing and recreational sports. I always wanted to learn how to be a responder and learn though, there's not that many location that I know that teaches in Nebraska. Even then I have to (re)-learn how to swim. If anyone know some good links and locations please feel free to send some to me. I also did White water rafting and I loved it. Much respect and love for those out there doing now!

  • The scariest thing is the drowning person's will to survive which can result in them drowning their rescuers. That's why rescuers will sometimes knock the person out to make it more manageable.

  • Proof those covid vaccines are bullshit: The Health Ministry has recommended that all Israelis, including those vaccinated or recovered, avoid unnecessary trips abroad to prevent new variants from entering the country. “The situation in the world is such that we highly recommend not to travel abroad if you do not have to,” the ministry’s Director-General Chezy Levy said in a press briefing on Thursday. “At the same time, the Health Ministry identified seven countries where there is a very high morbidity and a good chance of getting infected or catching variants. We recommend as much as possible not to travel to these countries. Just don’t go.” WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU AFRAID OF IF VACCINATED? They know not jack shit is returning to normal with those vaccinations.

  • I got thrown off a raft and trapped underneath back in the early 2000s going down a class 4+ rapid in the Royal Gorge. The truth is you have to save yourself or the people on the boat have to drag you back in or you're dead.

    • @Jonathan Lopez Jeez that's a shame. I guess both teachers and rescuers are both underpaid unfairly. I teach investing on my channel if you want to perhaps build a larger yearly income. :)
