What is Swift Water Rescue?

Swift water rescue is a specialized discipline that focuses on rescuing individuals in fast-moving water environments. Swiftwater rescue requires a unique set of skills and techniques to safely navigate and extract people from hazardous water conditions. Our swift water rescue team is extensively trained in these techniques — ensuring prompt and effective response.

What is Ice Water Rescue?

Ice water rescue involves saving individuals in distress amidst icy, sub-zero water conditions. Our specially trained teams are equipped with purpose-built gear to navigate freezing temperatures, water hazards, and treacherous ice formations — then safely retrieve those in need.

Our focus is on rapid rescue and immediate medical attention — mitigating risks for both rescuers and those trapped in ice water environments.

Water Rescue Systems and Techniques – Ensuring Safe Extractions

At Ikamotsiipi Carleton Rescue, our trained team utilizes specialized systems and techniques to complete safe extractions in complex swift water and ice water environments.

From pulleys & mechanical advantage systems to contact rescues, our expertise in swift water, ice water, and standing water rescue lets us navigate virtually any water hazard, determine the most appropriate rescue approach, and perform efficient rescues.
