Flood Rescue Boat Operator (FRBO)

Flood Rescue Boat Operator is a course designed to train rescue personnel in handling motorized boats during flood operations. Students are exposed to a number of topics including types of motorized boats suitable for water rescue, boat handling on still or slowly moving water, crew roles, boat safety and problem solving. Techniques are then put to work doing searches in flood environments, stranded victim and in-water retrieval, and rescue of conscious and unconscious persons.

The Flood Rescue Boat Operator training course is a 3-day course which incorporates all elements of the RBO course and adds flood rescue capability. It is ideal for any emergency service personnel who may attend flood events with boats for low level casualty and victim recovery from a flood or slow moving water environment.
