The team receives instruction.
Twelve members of Volusia County’s Technical Rescue Team traveled to Columbus, Ga. to complete an Advanced Swiftwater Rescue certification course in the rapids of the Chattahoochee River. Members learned about hydrology and the dynamics of moving water in relation to identifying deadly hazards while organizing a successful rescue during a swiftwater emergency. Skills included self-rescue and victim-rescue techniques while in the water, as well as rope rigging, and boat operations. The group completed individual skills and rescues in the water in addition to multiple team scenarios in both daylight and night conditions utilizing water rescue and boat rescue techniques. The knowledge, skills, and experience gained during this class further the ability of Volusia County’s Technical Rescue Team to successfully serve the citizens of Volusia County.
