Specific strategies and skills are necessary when working in or around water – it can be unpredictable, uncontrollable, and extremely dangerous. We are proud to have some of the most advanced equipment pertaining to water rescue in the industry. A 23-foot jet boat, Zodiacs, and personal watercraft are all at our disposal. All of our equipment can be deployed and operated in just about any environment. Our jet boat provides rescue support with the speed and dependability of any land based rescue service, while offering a stable work environment for rescue or dive inspection operations. Our equipment allows us to respond to an emergency with speed and maneuverability that is unmatched in our industry.
Our personnel have been involved in numerous water rescue activities both in industry and municipal service delivery. Our teams take pre-planning very seriously and ask the tough questions. What is the potential for a worker to enter the water? What is the best extraction method? Which equipment is necessary on the project? Ground vs. Air medical evacuation? Fastest access to and from waterways? Location of aircraft landing zones? These are just a few of the many important questions we ask. Our teams experience ensures that incidents are avoided, and the already difficult task of working in or around water is controlled.
Should an accident occur, Mission Safety's Water Rescue teams are trained in water-specific search techniques, rope work, ice rescue, rigging, emergency patient care, confined space rescue, dive recovery, and most importantly, static and swift water rescue. Water rescues have many unpredictable variables compared to standard emergencies. Our teams remain in a constant state of readiness at all times during an operation.
