TESTIMONIALS

Chris Huovinen, Nipigon River Bridge Crew

Awesome experience! Tim Wheeler is building our comfort level and advancing our skills at an epic pace. My group and I are having nothing but fun while learning the importance of staying focused and aware of the real hazards and dangers of the tasks at hand. Thanks to you all at Raven Rescue for all of this. I feel much safer knowing what I know now, whether at work or at play.
