  • NFPA 1006 CH16 Surface Water Technician (19-1006.16-T-1)

    (Fri Aug 9, 2019 - Sun Aug 11, 2019)


    Course Name – NFPA 1006 – Surface Water Rescue Technician

    Course Length:

    3 Days or 24 hours of Instruction

    Course Description:

    Southwest Fire Academy designed the surface water rescue course to take the novice water rescuer and train them to the requirements found in NFPA 1006 chapter 16 in a safe atmosphere.  Water rescue training is some of the most hazardous training undertaken by technical rescuers.  SFA is committed to student’s safety and success and as such we only use experienced water rescue instructors and adhere to strict 5:1 student to instructor ratios and we practice a dictatorial accountability and entry control system.

    We provide students with the best PPE and equipment available to technical rescuers.  Students will perform skill stations that include:

    • Command and Size-up
    • Shore Based Rescue
    • Water Based Rescue
    • RDC Based Rescue

    This is an entry level water rescue course and as such the waterways we use are static in nature.  We believe that rescuers must first learn basic skills in a safe environment before moving into more difficult conditions.  To that end, you will not be exposed to a swift-ice water environment.  If you are looking for safe quality training, look no further.

    SFA Swim Test – Completed on first day of course in a swimming pool.

    • 15 minute tread water without PFD
