'Swiftwater and Flood Rescue Guidance' describes the key information to enable not only specialist teams but all emergency services and volunteer organisations to participate fully and safely in flooding incidents that may require rescue to save life.
Based on the pioneering techniques of Jim Segerstrom, the founder of swiftwater rescue, and anchored to the recommendations produced by the UK Chief Fire Officers' Association (UK CFOA), this is the first comprehensive, UK-based, training manual for water rescue.
The manual covers key issues in swiftwater and flood rescue, incident information and guidance and a section on vocationally related qualifications for all individuals required to operate in flooding or swiftwater environments.

This guidance provides a standardised approach to safely and efficiently dealing with incidents involving water. It is intended to provide a 'start-to-finish' approach to such incidents, with the exception of operations involving diving below the surface of the water for search and rescue. This will help organisations across the public and private sector to safely manage flood rescue operations, in line with recent UK legislation.
