ACA L4 Swiftwater Rescue Course Grand Junction, CO

Buzzards, Chat Thatcher and I are holding a L4 Swiftwater Rescue Course beginning in just over a week. The base of operation will be at Colorado Mesa University, with field time occurring on the Gunnision and/or Colorado. If you are a CMU student or alumni it's just over $100. Everyone else is $200. There are several spots remaining, with a maximum group size of 10.

The Swiftwater Rescue workshop teaches recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and rescue techniques for paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. Techniques for dealing with hazards that carry greater risks for both victim and rescuer, such as strainers, rescue vest applications, entrapments, and pins, also are practiced. Scenarios will provide an opportunity for participants to practice their skills both individually and within a team/group context.

Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
