Beyond Cold Water Boot Camp is an educational program for first responders initially delivered on line. It was created to change the statistics of the number of severely hypothermic subject who died during or shortly after rescue. The program was comprised of video lectures and demonstrations , graphics, text and delivered through the web. It eventually was extended into an ongoing series of cold water workshops and instructor courses where first responder / educators were trained to provide cold water rescue education to others.
Playsafe developed the concept, produced the proposal, created the product, continues to maintain the site and works with the CSBC in a volunteer capacity to manage the workshops.
Note. A separate Beyond Cold Water Boot Camp program was created for the U. S. market in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Water Safety Congress
