K38 Training: How to Recover a Person from a Rock in a River Using a Res...

Uploaded on May 11, 2015

How to pick up a person from a rock in a river using a Personal Water Craft? K38 uses a 3 point training platform that utilizes helm and throttle control, reading the water and the weather, and trim of the rescue water craft. This is a layered approach that is put in technical behavioral decisions in our training courses. They are all dependent upon one another for flawless execution. There is no damage to the RWC, but without good training it will be impossible to come alongside a fixed object like a rock without damage. Please take a training course and earn your certification so you can serve the public and represented your public safety agency.
