  • PPE for shore line and surface water operations

    Question regarding best practices for shore line or surface water rescue operations. What is the minimum PPE expected for responders who do not go into the water, but who assist from the shore or from watercraft? Our current SOGs mandate PFD, rescue helmet, whistle, rescue light (attached to PFD), and radio. Any suggestions? What do others require?

    Seems like a pretty comprehensive list for surface water or ops guys....I might add a throw bag, since ops guys are usually trained on them. If they're near the water, they should be able to affect rescue from shore. Surface water guys should NOT be operating in watercraft. Most swiftwater guys aren't even competent at boat ops. Sorry for the two year bump....but damn. These threads are dead.
