Swiftwater Rescue Working Group

The NH State Fire Marshal's Office wishes to determine and improve the capabilities for swift water rescue in the State of New Hampshire. This initiative was born out of the need for resources during Hurricane Irene.

Below please find links to several documents that have been identified to help identify what a swiftwater rescue team is and what they need for equipment.

The NH Fire Standards & Training Commission will be reviewing four training classes for Swiftwater Awareness; Swiftwater Rescue Technician, Level 1; Swiftwater Rescue Technician, Level 2; and Swiftwater Rescue Boat Operator.
