Does anyone have SOP's/SOG's for moving water/swiftwater rescues, that they would be willing to share? If so please email me at
I have dive SOP's, so I am only looking for surface rescue information. Thanks

Sorry, I am unable to help you with any SOP'S/SOG'S, but I am looking for the same thing. Several of our members were recently trained in Swiftwater Rescue and we are attempting to organize a team to assist in our area. If you have gotten any info since you posted this please let me know, and I will do the same if I get any new info. Stay safe!!
Please e-mail if you can firstname.lastname@example.org

The South Bend (Ind.) Fire Dept along with the Ohio and Indiana DNR. Put on a great swift water class along the East Race in South Bend, Ind. Contact B/C Jim Lopez. I used to be a Instructor there before I left to work in a Steel Mill. The East Race is a man made swift water race way. It is used in as a public water park, a Class 3 water way for kayak racing. The teach land base rescue and boat rescue. Also there is a low head dam that is there. Tell Jimmy that Darrell sent you.

I also have taken the ODNR class & although to me it seems to deal more with low head dams, I found it interesting. (Apparently so did the Commonwealth of PA, I hear they "adopted" it.
Anyone have opinions (OK, silly question) on ODNR v. Rescue 3?"That's just my opinion, I could be wrong"... Dennis Miller
