Swift Water Rescue

A Nor-Cal EMS Webcast Continuing Education Series

The "Swift Water Rescue" video has been discontinued.

Presented by Brend Dubois, Instructor/Trainer

Swift Water Training is presented by Brent Dubois, Instructor/Trainer, and Flight Paramedic. It was recorded live in front of an audience at the 2014 Northstate Prehospital Conference held at the Win River Casino on April 26, 2014. (The audio is a little rough due to the room acoustics. Be sure to follow the slides - download the presentation below. Audio will be recorded direct in future conferences for better audio quality.) Brent Dubois educates from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) document 1670 Standard on Operations and Training for Search and Rescue Incidents. The standard identifies and establishes levels of functional capability for efficiently and effectively conducting operations at technical search and rescue incidents while minimizing threats to rescuers. Provisions define levels of preparation and operational capability and provide an outline of a system that progresses from the simple basic awareness level to the operations level, and, finally, to the technician level. While it covers the majority of rescue disciplines, Brent will cover swift water rescue including the cold zone, warm zone, hydrology, helical flow, and various rescue techniques.

PowerPoint slides are not available for this session.
