It may be the quiet season in the majority of the US rafting world, that doesn’t mean that we can’t be thinking ahead to 2017 and what we can do to help make it a better and safer rafting year for everyone. While we all love the whitewater, it is definitely not without its risks (which may also partially be what attracts so many people to it). With that in mind, we believe that even though we can’t completely eliminate all these risks, we can take active steps to minimize.
One of the best ways to do so is to spend some time taking and completing safety certification courses offered by a number of different reputable organizations. What makes this great is that these organizations do the work to make sure that they are up to date with the most relevant safety information and training, so you can be sure that you’ll be getting the best information to help you (and those around you) to stay safer on the water.
Below we have put together a list of some of our top resources for whitewater safety – and from those you can:
- Sign up for an in-person course
- Read top online tips
