Over Memorial Day weekend 24 people took a Swiftwater Rescue Technician class hosted on the Gallatin River. The group was a mix of river guides, Big Sky Search and Rescue members and private boaters. The class was a two and a half day course focused on teaching river safety and rescue skills.

The weekend was cold, with a mix of snow and rain and temperatures in the low 30s. The group was well dressed in Kokatat dry suits, helmets and numerous fleece layers to help prepare for the hours spent swimming the Gallatin River. The Whitewater Rescue Institute taught the course and offers other trainings throughout the summer.
