Cold Water/ Immersion Survival
Every year more people are venturing out on the ice on ATV’s, snowmobiling, ice fishing, & cross country skiing, and every year someone loses their life by falling through thin ice. Is your emergency service ready to handle this situation, or are emergency services available within a reasonable time?
This program is for anyone who may find themselves in a position where they would have to initiate an ice rescue or may find themselves in a situation where they have fallen through the ice and must initiate a self rescue.
This basic Surface Ice Rescue program is designed to protect you the rescuer from becoming a victim yourself, while training you in the proper safe approach to Surface Ice Rescue.
