Brief Description
Open Water Rescuer – Basic (2014)
Full Description
This course provides detailed information, and the skills training required, to improve an individual’s level of comfort and confidence for safely and proficiently performing contact rescues in static and surf water conditions. Safety is strongly emphasized throughout the class. Risk management is reinforced during every skill to establish your level of comfort in the water and to identify and overcome your limitations. The emphasis on risk management helps you determine if your actions meet your agencies SOPS/SOGS in the determination of a rescue being a “offensive” or “defensive” operation. Swimming, stroke technique and body positioning in the water are covered. “In water” skills for students include how to read and understand water flow, reading and understanding surf, contact rescues using rescue buoy devices and boards, dealing with combatant victims, performing self-rescues, and rescues of multiple victims both conscious and unconscious. The entire course meets the requirements of swimming contact rescue of NFPA 1670 and NFPA 1006 Chapter 11, sections 11.2, Chapter 15, sections 15.2.
