GSSD plans to have a swiftwater certification training on July 8th, 9th, and 10th, 2011. This is not a required training, however, it would be very beneficial for our unit. The cost for swiftwater certification is about $375. Half of this price may be reimbursed by the SAR Council.
A dry suit is also required for the training, but may be rented for as low as $50 for the weekend. You must be a brushmonkey to attend.
Please email kevinwhayward [at] gmail [dot] com if you are interested. You must sign up before June 21st, 2011.
