Our training team were at the Breede River this weekend to facilitate a course on Swift Water Rescue.
The purpose of this course is to train our volunteers in the dangers of swift water and how to safely navigate a fast flowing river as well as the various rescue techniques used to recover a casualty trapped in strong flowing water.
Volunteers from Still Bay, Mossel Bay, Knysna and Agulhas were taught these necessary skills.
Thank you to the Western Cape Government department of Disaster Management who has sponsored the Swift Water training and equipment.
Below are a few images of their training.
