Icy Swiftwater Rescue Practice

Michael Short’s “Let’s Go Outdoors” joins some Canadian Fish & Wildlife officers as they practice swift water rescue skills in the Athabasca River with Joe Storms. Joe is an ACA certified Pro Canyon Guide, swifwater rescue instructor and Jasper Park Warden. The icy waters near Jasper were a real challenge for these recruits as they personally got to experience the thrill and terror of being carried along in the fast flowing river.
