swift/open water rescue
I need some help!!!! Our department currently has no policy for swift/open water resuce. We are in the process of drafting a policy and need some ideas. Any help, such as your departments policy, would be greatly appreciated.
Stay safe and thanks in advance!!!!

As far as open water goes, first responders can't enter the water for a swimming rescue with out the Mustang or Stearns suit.
We aren't equipped for swift water so we don't do entry. (we also don't have any outside of flooding)
