Live Bait Rescue

Hello Everybody,

So the season has officially started.  We have had a few Wilderness First Aid (WFA) courses but last week was our first Swiftwater Rescue course of the season.  The weather was amazing, cloudy and overcast the first day and then sunny and down right hot on day 3.  The water wasn’t high but just about right.  I was afraid with how little rain we were getting that it would be lower.  I think we only had a few bumps and bruises.  The course was a good mix of students from Los Angeles Fire, Department of Fish and Game, and the Army Corps of Engineers.  Robb Eichelberger from San Diego Lifeguard Association came and co-taught and even James Reinheimer from Long Beach Fire Dept and Marine Safety came up and hung out with us for a day.  Both are Rescue 3 West Instructors and it was great to have them.  Thanks to all of you for your wonderful energy.  It was a great course to start the Swiftwater Rescue season on!!
