Firefighters with Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services are participating in a Still Water Class at the Cherokee County Aquatic Center.
According to Fire Training Officer, Robbie Kennedy, “The skills taught in this class are meant to provide a minimum skill set to enable our personnel to perform during these types of water emergencies. Properly donning personal flotation devices, deploying rope bags, towing victims in from the water and patient packaging while in the water are all topics that are taught and demonstrated in this class.”
Kim Whatley and her staff at the Aquatic Center are always accommodating and extremely professional, added Kennedy.
The class started yesterday and will last for two weeks.
We are fortunate to have an experienced and knowledgeable instructor within our department to put on this type of training.
