Testimonials

Melissa Paulhus, Training Coordinator
Lillooet & District Rescue

Roadside Rope Rescue - Lillooet, BC

“Our instructor worked with our rescue chief to stay consistent to our training while still teaching us new things on our Roadside Rescue course. The instructor was able to work with the tools we already had.”

Lyndon Brecia
Environmental Emergency Response, LTL Group

Swiftwater Rescue Technician

“Our course was awesome. The instructors did an excellent job as well. What these guys did over the last three days is the way all training should be. I have been disappointed with training providers in the past, and you guys have reassured me there is still hope! Greatly appreciated. We had an awesome time, and will never look at a river the same again. We look forward to working with you again.”

Adam Galbraith, Firefighter
Richmond Fire Department

Swiftwater Rescue Technician (Advanced) - Squamish, BC

“As a full time firefighter in the lower mainland, I have been to many courses, and by far this one was one of the best! Craig Gerrard is born to do this. Not only is he a wealth of important knowledge, he is able to communicate this knowledge without ego, in a positive manner, that harbours a fun, challenging, and useful course.”

Darren Anderson
Strathcona Fire Department

“Huge "thank you" to Ron Morrison, Rob Vance & Chris Burnham for a fantastic week of Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Technician training. Your professionalism, dedication, knowledge and passion for your profession is second to none. ”

James Doughtry, Pararescue Specialist
103rd Rescue Squadron, US Air Force

Custom Technical Rope & Swiftwater Rescue Training: Squamish, BC

“We really couldn't have asked for more in a two week period - the amount and quality of training we received was like nothing I've seen before. I have been going on training trips usually twice a month for the last 4 years and this was by far the best I have been to.”

Darren Saare
Port Alberni Search & Rescue

Swiftwater Rescue Technician (Advanced) - Port Alberni, BC

“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.”

Rick Huck, Lieutenant
Leeds 1000 Islands Fire Service

Ice Rescue Technician - Landsdowne, ON

“We had a mixed bag of students, from firefighters, environment workers and a contractor. I would recommend Raven Rescue to anyone who wants to learn about ice rescue. Once again, GREAT course and instructor. Thanks so much. ”

Steve McKinlay
Firefighter Candidate

Technical Rope Rescue - Operations: North Vancouver, BC

“My instructor Kit was a complete professional with his subject. He was personable and encouraged questions - he also constantly asked questions to check for understanding. There was no time spent standing around, and we always knew what our goals were during scenarios. I had a fun experience during my Operations ropes course, and Kit heightened my desire to be a fire fighter.”
