Last weekend, 11 volunteer firefighters completed their Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Water Rescue and Emergency Response training taught by WhiteCap Water Rescue Training, LLC.

This course included many valuable swiftwater rescue techniques. The course provided the base on which all other PA Fish & Boat Commission courses are built. Using both classroom and practical hands-on training, Water Rescue & Emergency Response covered planning, medical considerations, rescue equipment, self-rescue and shore-based rescue techniques. Many of these volunteers will be completing their Advanced Line Systems Rescue training next week.

Special thanks to the Quarry Swim Association for hosting a portion of the course.
