Emergency Response

Boat

We offer two different approaches to boat-based training from fully-certified courses by Rescue 3 International to customized sessions designed to meet your specific needs. Whether your call out zone includes flat water, swiftwater or tidal water, we have an approach that will give you the confidence and skills needed to operate your boat in a safe manner. Training can be geared to watercraft with external propellors or jetboat engines, jet skis, or non-motorized watercraft including rafts or rapid deployment rescsue crafts.

TESTIMONIALS

Jason Milne, Captain, Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue

Wouldn’t you know it, last night at midnight we had a jumper off the bridge. The boy’s had him in the boat within minutes. Thanks to the training you provided us with, the call was very successful [7 hours after his department completed a Motorized Swiftwater Boat Operator course.]
