Eight Reasons to Attend Wakota CAER's "Boom School"
- You'll be better prepared for "the big one" after going through the table top and river exercises.
- Train using the most appropriate and up-to-date equipment. If you are a member of the River Spill Cooperative, you will be using equipment you helped pay for.
- Summer is a great time to be on the Mississippi River. Attend boom school and catch the beautiful scenery of the river.
- How often do you get to use really cool 800 MHz radios and operate on the state's radio system -- in a non-emergency situation? We'll cover radio and system use during the training.
- You will have an opportunity to meet and share experiences with other responders in other lines of work.
- You will learn how to operate a small watercraft in a safe manner in a river current and have fun doing so.
- It will be entertaining. Storytellers (instructors) will be sharing urban legends (case studies) and cautionary tales (lessons learned).
- Boats, not desks... 'nuff said.
