Annually, we have been doing an intro for new members and exercise for our certified swift-water technicians for training. Below is the video from our 2015 event. New members are given the opportunity to learn basic self rescue, view a swift-water scene, and do some basic swift-water rescue to see if they are interested in completing swift-water certification.

Training for newer members included some basic team building exercises(Raft Barge), self rescue (boat and surface water), throw bag exercises, line gun experience, raft operation, and some other essential skills needed by all rescuers.
