The Full Story Of

What People Say About STARR

Covington County, MS 

I cam from a law enforcement background and very diverse in special operations. But quickly learned in my new role as the Director of Covington County Emergency Manager that I needed water rescue operations training. STARR's Swift Water Rescue Course provided great information and skills needed to effectively and efficiently, with a focus on safety.


Since taking the course in August 2021, I have conducted over 20-plus water rescue operations in just the last two years as the EMA Director.. The knowledge, training, and standards assisted with our county water response plan. The cadre of instructors at STARR is my opinion is a professional, reputable, knowledgable company providing training to the highest standards, to the point I recommend them to my employees, county officials, and others. I will continue to use STARR as our training service agency and consider them a top tier training company.

We were looking for water rescue training 4-years ago and found STARR who we have been extremely pleased with their level of service provide to us. STARR was initially came recommended by another fire department that had done some training with them. STARR has always left our department members with confidence in their training. Our department members in every course has always felt safe as STARR is tuned into ensuring students safety. STARR has been excellent at accommodating our needs as our schedules are ever changing. Gary and Keith specifically have offered us an excellent product and we look forward to working with them and their team in the future.

Our department has taken class from all over, but STARR has gone above and beyond providing a great class. They put in a LOT of work into the curriculum and are still able to provide great meals to the students for 1/2 the cost of other companies. It is truly a course that we can walk away from and say that "we" earned that certificate. Keep up the outstanding work! See you next time.
