The American Canoe Association (ACA) River Safety and Rescue workshop teaches essential boating safety; recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and simple rescues of paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. Fundamental techniques for dealing with hazards that carry greater risks for both victim and rescuer, such as entrapment, and pins, also are taught.
