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!

This includes set up and configuration of all road signage & direction markers prior to the race, take-down after the race, and runner & rider safety and traffic control during the race.

The road safety coverage area begins at Story Land where the Inferno race start happens. Runners progress up Route 16, turn onto Glen Ledge Road and proceed from there towards and along Route 302 to the Attitash/Thorne Pond kayak transition point. The road safety team also has responsibility from the kayak-to-bike transition point at Glen Ellis Campground as kayakers leave the river and mount their bikes to ride all the way back to Pinkham Notch where they leave the road at the Direttissma parking lot at Pinkham Notch just south of the AMC Visitor Center on Route 16. The road safety team is supplemented by the local Bartlett police department, the Carroll County Sheriff's office and the NH State Police with respect to all public road crossings and traffic control. Volunteers may be asked to assist at one or more of these transition points or road crossings. Other aspects of the job are handing out water and snacks and assisting with gear transport.   Scroll down to sign up as a volunteer...
