Drowning fact reference

Every emergency responder needs to have this tough, waterproof 4X6" guide handy. Made to fit in a pocket, a glove compartment or a emergency response pack, it’s still the ultimate (and only) field reference to swiftwater rescue.

In addition to the new material, the Swiftwater Rescue Field Guide still covers topics like basic rescuer safety considerations, river hydrology, equipment, shore-based, boat-based, and in-water rescue techniques; knots, rigging for river rescue, helicopters, incident command; and special situations like low-head dams and flood channel rescues.

If it’s been awhile since you took your last swiftwater rescue course, you’ll appreciate having this handy pocket reference. It’s written by Slim Ray, author of Swiftwater Rescue and an internationally-recognized authority on the subject.
