Our comprehensive Intro to River Safety & Rescue presentation was recorded last spring and can be found here:  https://www.poudrepaddlers.org/videos.html

Last year’s recorded presentation covers numerous safety topics plus self-rescue and assisted-rescue.  Everyone who boats (& passengers) should be familiar with these topics and techniques.  If you are paddling whitewater a great investment is a Swiftwater Rescue Class.  All of our Clubs are hosting this type of class this year.  Look on your Club website for more information.
