SWIFT WATER RESCUE
We started the team with 12 members, mostly made up of Public Safety career staff. We began training on the New River during the summer of 2007. By fall 2007 we had 12 certified Basic SWT members.
Today, we have a 16 member team, 1 Motor Boat, 1 Paddle Raft, and a SWT Trailer/River Command Unit.
Our team also partners with the other regional Swift Water Teams to provide a more efficient and resourceful team during emergencies.
