Abstract:

A how-to guide of safety, rescue, and recovery techniques for all who work and play on the water. Practical advice for identifying and responding to risks on the water Covers all the essential equipment you'll need Over 150 helpful photos and illustrations Tips for trip-planning "Nate Ostis draws from his 20+ years of experience working on the river to share his invaluable insight into river rescue."--Ben Morton, ACA Instructor Trainer Educator and founder of Precision Paddlesports. "...an excellent resource for river rescue...a well-organized approach to a complex topic."--Justin Padgett, paramedic, ACA Instructor Trainer, and 2015 National Safety and Rescue Curriculum Chair "Any river runner, amateur or professional, should study this book cover to cover. If you don't have Nate Ostis along on your trip, be sure to pack his book."--Les Bechdel, co-author, River Rescue "Preparation is the key to successful outcomes when something goes wrong on the river. Nate Ostis and the NOLS River Rescue Guide have done a great job presenting real life examples, up-to-date techniques, and critical thinking to help boaters become better whitewater leaders. Be prepared: read this book!"--Jim Coffey, director of Rescue for River Runners & Esprit Whitewater and director of Whitewater Intensive Leadership Development School (WILD) "This comprehensive text provides state-of-the-art coverage of river rescue techniques with details not yet seen in print. A valuable asset that belongs in the library of every serious boater and every volunteer and professional rescue team. Highly recommended."--Sam Fowlkes, ACA Safety and Rescue Committee Chair "This fresh approach to river rescue reads less like a textbook and more like a passionate author wanting to share his experience and the collaborative knowledge of his peers."--Mike Mather, Rescue 3 International Instructor and ACA Instructor Trainer.
