Do you think you could make even the SLIGHTEST effort at searching a little before posting this in not one, but two different threads?
Sorry if a little cranky after a long day at work...
Here are a few:

also consider taking a swift water rescue course
OARS is doing one in Jackson this weekendThanks and that's a great idea. I took my first SRT through Rescue 3 in 1998 in Alaska while working with Juneau Mountain rescue, and no joke just called today to try and see if someone in the area was teaching another class. My friends and I did some boat flipping and throw bag rescues in the river last Saturday to brush up, but It's always good to brush up officially.

Pretty sure it's SRT1.
Glad I could give you some ideas. I tend to overdo it sometimes with the gear but when the shit hits the fan you don't lack of a handy bag to be an issue. Once during another trips debacle ( two paddle boat flips and a cat maybe) I did have three throw bags deployed to get to folks. And that was a mess of rope in the boat after, but I am glad I had the bags handy for that. The p cord has been used a few times to get ropes across the river too. Once to retrieve a sweep boat pinned on a cliff. That was kind of fun and not too scary like seeing 15 people in the water all at once.
