  • Water/Ice Rescue SOGs

    We are looking at getting equipment and training for water and ice rescue operations. Would like to see some SOGs that we can use for a guideline. Along with any helpful suggestions. Also what equipment would you reccomend for these types of situations. If you can send a copy by e-mail please send to: [email protected] or [email protected] If you can not send a file through e-mail let me know and I will get you an address you can send it to. Thank you for any assistance.

        Hey all,

        Our agency routinely has to do operations in and around swift water canals and "rivers" (I use the term lightly, but for the purpose of this discussion it applies ).
        From a risk management point of view, we are looking at carrying rescue rated PFDs and maybe even throw bags, as there are several occasions where we arrive "first", or get transported to a patient by boat.
        We have no intention of ever entering the water, or of replacing the local dive team and their apparatus.

        But we want to be safe, and CYA from a liablitity and public point of view.

        SO, What I am looking for is a "Water rescue awareness level" (for lack of a better term) class or guideline and/or training recomendations.

        Please feel to reply or email at :

        And yes we intend to go through the local dive team, but I wanted some third party opinions, for various reasons it wouldnt be PC to mention here, and wanted to be sure what we are told is correct.

        Thanks
