Course site (updated)
There are a number of great whitewater rescue training sites around Blakeney Rapids that we will choose from depending on water levels.
The meeting location on day-1 is: Blakeney Rapids Parking Lot - 152 Blakeney Rd, Almonte, ON, K0A 1A0
We'll start at our meeting spot with some on-land training. We'll then carpool to our first river site. For the rest of the course, the instructor will let you know about meeting locations for each day depending on water levels.
