Instructors from across the region will teach courses like High Water Vehicle Rescue, GPS Usage in Floodwater Rescue, Search Dog Deployment during Flood Events, Pinned Victim Water Rescue, Aerial and Ground Ladder Use, and Boat Operations in Swiftwater. Leading industry vendors will be onsite to demonstrate their newest equipment. This conference is available to all rescuers regardless of prior training or current skill set.
