Fastwater Spill Response Training

Located near Missoula, Montana on the Clark Fork River, WRI Training Center provides the ideal location for comprehensive courses. We have also conducted fastwater spill response trainings throughout the U.S.: from the Mississippi to the Columbia, we have the experience to train your team.  We offer a range of classes that emphasize responder safety and  risk management,  while providing hands-on training with skills needed to quickly deploy boom in fast water.   Participants learn to recognize and avoid fastwater hazards, equipment, booming strategies, recovery systems, rigging onshore anchors, establishing mid-stream attachment points, creating deflection boom, containment boom, cascading chevrons, line crossings, boom vanes, jet boat operations and much more.

“When we work with the Whitewater Rescue Institute, we know that our students are receiving the most relevant skills and information, from the source. Their instructors are the recognized leaders in the field and, as importantly, incredible educators. They get our students out in the water, experiencing phenomenally realistic, challenging and yet manageable scenarios, and follow those up with concise and direct feedback. Nothing could be better.”
