Swift-water Rescue

The Nooksack River flows right through the middle of  District #1. The river is prone to flooding in the wet winter months and also hosts a vast amount of recreational activities that include; fishing, swimming, canoeing, and inter-tubing down the river. Due to the potential hazards that the river poses to the community, District #1 operates two boats for rescues in the moving water. Volunteers go through regular training to operate the boats and perform rescues in these dangerous conditions.
