Whitewater Safety and Rescue – Principles and Methods

I will be updating this page as soon as and when necessary.

Principles

The most important principle is Self, Team, Victim, Kit this shows the order of priority that things rank in. It also highlights the importance of self rescue because as a victim you are  second to last priority for everyone else. It also means don”t wade into a dangerous situation just to rescue a boat.

Methods

I have made a little list of posts that may be helpful to people wanting to know how to do various types of rescues.
