Water Safety Training Day
Hi I’m Dan from Rescue 3 New
Zealand. We’re here today on the Kaituna River we’re teaching the Bay of Plenty
Regional Council water safety skills. How to get themselves out of trouble and
also how to recognize hazards and keep themselves and co-workers safe.
Oh hi I’m Dan and I’m Hayden. It’s the first time that I’ve been out here on the
river doing some water safety, learning about in the event of emergency what the
best practices are and how to get to the side safely and hopefully one of our mates
will come along and save us. We’ve been doing bag throwing and
trying to stay at a 45 degree angle and swim across, to push us towards the side into the eddy.
