Whitewater Rescue Institute: Experience Matters!
With over 50 years of combined experience, at the Whitewater Rescue Institute we pride ourselves on our ability to provide safe, up-to-date, and realistic assessments of river use and river hazards. Our team has been involved with swiftwater rescue curriculum development, risk management audits, providing expert witness testimony, ensuring safety on a movie/television productions, and consulting in river clean up operations. We are happy to assist you and your organization in creating a safe work environment and ensuring that you are up to industry standards.
“I really appreciate the swift water rescue operations and technician-level training WRI provided for Kennedy Jenks Consultants and the BNSF Railway Company emergency response personnel at Havre, MT and Guernsey, WY in 2010. The training classes were hands-on and greatly improved our river-safety skill levels. Several of my rafting and kayaking friends and I have also attended WRI swiftwater rescue technician classes on the Stillwater River this summer. As good as the training is, what really impressed me was when I called WRI late in the evening on 12 May, 2010 to respond to a BNSF train derailment on the Wind River, you and your staff responded quickly and provided our emergency response team with several swiftwater rescue technicians, a rescue raft, a jet boat, and valuable river safety oversight. We look forward to working with WRI again.”
