TEEX Release Swiftwater Rescue App

If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, download the new Swiftwater Calculator app from Texas Engineering Extension Service's (TEEX) Urban Search and Rescue division. The Swiftwater Calculator application provides responders a quick and easy way to determine the maximum distance someone has traveled downstream in swiftwater conditions.  The application helps determine the speed of the swiftwater and will then calculate the distance someone would have traveled based on when they entered the water.

• Calculate speed of the swiftwater

• Quick buttons to select time of incident

• Constantly updates the distance traveled downstream
