River Safety Rescue Courses are designed to give people the knowledge and skills to prevent accidents on the river and also if a situation should arise deal with it.
In a RSR course we cover:
Systematic approach to rescue
Rope work, using throw bags different techniques and safety
Swimming in moving water (Defensive Swimming)
Shallow water crossing (Individual & Group)
Communication on the river and river bank
River Feature awareness (Basic Hydrology)
These courses are designed to cater for kayakers and Canoeists and the environment they will potentially find themselves in.
This course is also good for parents or members of a club who supervise sessions from the bank and will help them preform a rescue if needed in a safe and controlled way.
This is and Irish Canoe Union Recognized and Certified course.
