Day 5: Survival training

Day 5: Survival training


The training in the video is our annual water survival exercise to get real time familiarization with the boat crew survival vest that we wear and to understand what it feels like to be in the water if you’re ever approached with that situation. The training we conduct is a controlled environment, therefore when you go into the water, that you’re calm, collective and you understand, you familiarize where everything is at and you conduct a hundred yard swim, if you’re ever in that situation. When we do the survival exercise, we wear our coldest garment that we have, which would be dry suits for this area. The importance of doing this training is to ensure you stay calm if you go in the water, understand that you know where everything is located, that way if you are in the water, that you’re not stressed out and can rely on the training that you’re given so you can react properly. -You ready? Yeah. One. Two. Three.-
