On Wednesday the 29th of April, Missoula City Fire Department conducted their spring swiftwater refresher. Montana River Guides owner and WRI Instructor Mike Johnston coordinated the course. MRG guide Tommy Snyder, and Search and Rescue volunteers Elise Lowe and Becca Wallace came out to help make this a great day of training. Thanks guys! The firefighters got a chance to dust off their swiftwater skills and practice scenarios at Jacobs Island, Van Buren St Bridge and the diversion dam upstream of California Street. A special thank you to Missoula City Fire for your service to our community. Watch the video below to see how the training went!

“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!”
