On Wednesday, October 7th, WRI traveled to Guernsey, WY to work with Burlington Northern and its sub-contractors. This team, responsible for containment and recovery of derailed trains, is setting the standard for swiftwater awareness. With warm temperatures and enthusiastic participants, we were able to operate their 14′ Jet Boat, deploy boom and practice rescue skills. Thanks to BNSF and Kennedy-Jenks Consultants for a great course!
“Whether you are a river-rookie or an experienced boater, WRI tailors their classes to what you need to learn in a fun and challenging environment. Their scenario based teaching approach creates an electric learning atmosphere where you feel like you are in actual river rescue situations. I would recommend them to anybody!”
