Emergency Response

Swiftwater & Flatwater

The level of training you need depends on how close you get to the water in the course of your work.  We offer a full range of NFPA compliant water rescue courses to prepare you for any work environment.

The standard training levels are:

1.  Awareness (more than 10’ from water)
2.  Operations (within 10’ of water)
3.  Technician (in or on water)

For more information on choosing the best course for you, read our FAQ on Technical Rescue Training Levels.  Read our FAQ about the definition of moving water to learn whether you work in flatwater, or swiftwater.

TESTIMONIALS

Darren Saare
Port Alberni Search & Rescue

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.
