Swiftwater Rescue – Noodle Extraction Device

Written By: Lance Piatt

The victim desperately trying to keeping their head above the swift-moving current of the river so the rescue needs to be quick.

The first team heads out on Carlson Rescue Boards and to ferry the River Right (RR team). River Left (RL team) team fires the initial line across the river to the RR team who then pulls the mainline across.

 

RL team attaches “the noodle” and together, both teams lower the “net” to the victim as he passes below.

A successful evolution requires both teams to think quickly and have a solid knowledge of the river. The precise placement of the rescue capture device in the water is critical.

Main river currents dictate where, and the speed of the current determines how much time they have to get ready.

A special thanks go out to San Diego Lifeguards!

Peace on your Days

Lance
