River Safety

RiverSafetyGroup_490px.jpgThe Tuckerman Inferno River Safety Team is responsible for all aspects of river race course preparation, boater safety on the river and emergency response and river rescue. The Saco River is a wild river with unpredictable currents, fallen trees and boulders, and knowledge of river reading is recommended for race participants and volunteers. River safety volunteers will be stationed at various technical locations on the river to assist athletes who capsize.

The kayak-to-bike transition point is typically at the Glen Ellis Campground. Volunteers man this section of the course in boats and on land and will respond to any accidents or emergencies as needed with backup support provided by our partner agencies including the White Mountain Swiftwater Rescue Team (WMSRT). 

River Safety team members should have all their own paddling equipment and gear to participate. Please list specific skills and experience that you have when signing to volunteer. Thanks!
