River Safety and Rescue Class 
May 19 & 20  

Casey Garland will present a course on river safety, rope utilization and rescue techniques.  Team leadership and rescue planning will also be covered to achieve the best results in a rescue effort.

This class is great for a beginning whitewater boater or even a boater looking to tune up their rescue skills.

2-day class (Sat/Sun); Max 12 participants (6 Washington Kayak Club & 6 PTCC)

5/19 (Sa) 9am - 5pm
5/20 (Su) 9am - 5pm  
Lectures will be held at Mike Grijalva's house in Issaquah Saturday morning before heading to the river.  River work will likely be on the Cedar River, Landsburg site. 

$150.  PTCC will subsidize $75 to our members.  If the class is full, we will give priorities to those who lead a club trip in 2018.

Casey Garland has 40 years of experience as a river rafting outfitter and guide.  He is a Swiftwater Rescue Technician Master Instructor and responsible for introducing swiftwater rescue tech training in Washington, Oregon, Canada, Japan and Taiwan.  The course emphasis will be placed on evaluation and management of an incident, rope work for support and rescue of a person, and any topic the participants want to discuss during the rescue class that relates specifically to swift water rescue scenarios.
