River Rescue School with the Rovereto Firefighters

The Fluvial and Alluvial Rescue Training of the Rovereto Fire Department took place May-27 to May 31st 2018. The objective that the Commander Luca Minatti had set himself, was reached:
9 police officers were selected to access the training and all 9 achieved certification for Rescue 3 River and Alluvial Rescue Technicians 3.

The training took place over 4 very intense days, started in Adige, continued in Val di Sole on the Noce and ended on the Dora Baltea, in the upper Valle d’Aosta, so as to be able to operate on 3 different types of rivers.

Responding to relief in the river and in the flood environment is extremely risky.

“Being a River Relief technician does not mean being a river superhero,” explains David Alemanni, director of the S.A.F.E.® River Rescue School. “It is necessary to be competent and know how to choose the best option to intervene so that the rescuers remain the solution to the problem and do not risk becoming part of it.”. It was a great satisfaction to be able to work with competent, motivated, humble people, with great passion for their work

Rescue 3 was the first standard for River Relief born in the 80s, in California.

Today Rescue 3 Europe has adapted the US SRT standard, following European regulations and is recognized in 22 nations as a standard for river rescue for firefighters, civil protection and military.
