River Rescue & Incident Management for Canoeists – Beyond WWSR

This will be a pilot programme for what we hope will become a regular (and fascinating) OCA training day.

Search and Rescue specialists Chris Onions and Tim Bird will cover a cross section of technical Search and Rescue matters including:

  • Mechanical advantage T method
  • Rescue toys found on a fire engine
  • Lowering and raising loads (canoes)
  • Rescue training standards, levels and competencies. Primacy – who is in charge of river rescue?
  • Integrating with the emergency services, or how do I help when something has gone wrong?
  • River search where and how to look.

Those attending will be asked to provide feedback on how to develop the day in the longer term.
