So this weekend, DWF didn’t have any scuba diving classes, but that doesn’t mean he could stay out of the water.
DWF is also the Dive Operations Coordinator for the Fifth District Volunteer Fire Department’s Dive Team in Clarksville, MD. And since it’s getting so cold out it’s time to start our International Association of Dive Rescue Specialists (IADRS) testing.
As Public Safety Divers, we have to complete the IADRS Watermanship Test and Scuba Skills Review annually. Yah it’s a lot of work, but a necessary part of making sure that our dive team is up to snuff for the upcoming year.
Today’s fun included
- 800 meter swim (mask, snorkel, fins)
- 15 minute water tread (last 2 minutes hands out of water)
- 500 meter swim (freestyle, no equipment)
- Underwater Object Retrieval.
