Triathlon Water Rescue Support

Water Rescue Event Support

Water-based events provide benefits for the participants, organizers and wider community. They have become one of the main vehicles for charitable fundraising and raising awareness of good causes. 

One of the less welcomed aspects of this growth is the sometimes variable safety provision that has occurred; there have been a few notable near miss events in the US, and fatalities involving participants. Although rare, these incidents are growing in likelihood with the rise in participation and we believe in being the best water rescue / safety provider to minimize incidents, promote safety, while giving life-saving measures when needed.

Even simple things can become dangerous because this is not an ordinary situation.  We understand these risks which and strive to reduce risks and provide the best possible medical care until advanced care arrives.

An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
