What we do isn't what sets us apart - it's how we do it, and why.
From our technical training and equipment sales to our standby rescue & safety services, our approach has set the industry standard.
The course explores the advanced swiftwater and technical rope rescue techniques necessary when responding to incidents involving vehicles in moving water. The curriculum includes vehicle behaviour, vehicle stabilization, and risk mitigation, as well as access techniques and casualty extrication. It features a secure in-water training vehicle in a controlled river environment for a realistic learning experience. Meets and exceeds NFPA 1670 and 1006 requirements as well as Canadian WCB and OHS standards.
This advanced course is specially-designed for those already certified to the Swiftwater Rescue Technician level (current certification required). It was developed by Rescue 3 International and offered for the first time in Canada in September 2012.

Once again it was great working with Raven Rescue. The course environment was a challenge, since we were in heavy flood conditions, but Craig did a great job of adjusting the curriculum to meet the needs of the participants while maintaining a sufficient level of safety amongst heavy debris, massive whirlpools and somewhat bizarrely... a couple of huge sea lions that strayed up the river to play in the chaos.
