Cold Water / Ice Rescue Training

Nearly every jurisdiction has areas of potential cold water hazard, including lakes, rivers, farm ponds, retention ponds, and flooded quarries. Pioneer Rescue & Outfitters, LLC offers North America’s finest cold water/ice rescue training program available. In just one day your department can be trained to the technician level, giving you the skills necessary to perform a successful cold water rescue.
