Re: Water egress training



When I worked with LifeFlight Miami, we required all crew to complete a
water survival course.  We put on both an AMC training and water survival
course each year for new crew and recommended that all crew members take the
course as a refresher however we didn't require them to retake the water
course but many would as it can be rather fun to play with all the toys you
hope you never have to for real.  It was usually also open to the public,
not sure if they are still putting them on yearly or not but can find out if
anyone is interested.
