Water rescues occur on a daily basis. However, extreme weather events are happening
with more regularity. Inland flooding is one result and rescue services must be prepared
We believe the training available here through our company has been designed
specifically to serve these vital needs and especially for the first responder search
and rescue services (SAR) both statutory and voluntary. Developed in collaboration from
research and our Academy Instructors experiences from the front line and internationally
recognized experts in flood and water rescue tactics and techniques.
Professional Rescue Academy has continued to develop and sustain its work in training
client organization rescue units here in the UK, North America, Pacific rim and in
Europe. The Academy has the necessary Intellectual Property (IP) Manuals for all the
classes and tactics, facilities, accreditation and specialised training skills and Instructor
staff, to conduct this specialist training.
The water and flood rescue courses are listed below.
