The SRT1 course provides rescuers with the fundamentals of survival in moving water and is recommended for anyone who may be called upon to effect in-water rescues. Students gain knowledge in hydrology and river classifications, size-up, site control and scene management.  Practical skills include self-rescue, swiftwater swimming and the fundamentals of rope rescue including mechanical advantage and anchor systems. 

The SRT1 class also provides the rescuer the foundation to the NFPA Swiftwater Technician level. Swiftwater Technician level is a mandatory training level for inclusion on a Federal Emergency Management Agency Swiftwater/Flood Search and Rescue Team at all Team levels.


Students should expect 8-10 hour days of arduous physical training in unpredictable outdoor conditions. Students will be required to bring appropriate PPE (wetsuit/drysuit, Personal Floatation Device, Swiftwater helmet & boots).
Lodging available in Globe or Show Low, camping available on location.
