In line with our training program we recently conducted a Flood Boat rescue course which has resulted in the addition of four members to the Flood Response Team. The intensive training course was conducted over several days and combined classroom activities as well as on water practical assessments. One of the lessons was transport of livestock and with several willing volunteers the lesson was a success!
Our Flood Response team is trained to respond to any flood emergency and incorporates rescue techniques from land as well as from the water. Members are educated on the best way to approach a situation and assess the most appropriate way to rescue a person or people in distress. Look out for us (the yellow boats) on the Swan and Canning river conducting currency training over the next few months.
