Swift Water Rescue Training

Yesterday while photographing kayakers I stumbled upon an interagency swift water rescue training. It was being held between Calfire and the Laytonville Fire Department. They were learning and practicing swift water rescue technique. I watched them learn how to right their capsized rescue raft. How to toss a Throw Bag and how to walk in current safely as a group using a pike for support. These techniques are valuable to know where people need rescue from the swiftly flowing waters of the creeks and rivers of this region. I hope I never need their services! God love, blessings and protection to all, chris All images were created with a Canon 7D MkII and a Canon efs 17-85 mm lens. #teamcanon
