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.]
