Standard  Operating Procedures

As an agent for Rescue Canada, Green Tongue Adventures uses the most common utilized techniques for our Swift Water Rescue courses along with incorporating innovation and improvisation.

We utilize case studies and reports to prioritize the skills we practice. Just like in Emergency Medicine, there has been a lot of treatments practiced because it seemed like the right thing to do. We take those things and add some research to implement the techniques that work while still offering all the skills for a complete set of tools.
