In a swiftwater rescue scenario, it is useful to determine how far a person in the water has travelled downstream so that the search area may be narrowed and more effectively conducted. Although the math for determining this distance is relatively straightforward, it requires precious time that could be better used elsewhere. Mistakes may also be made in a high-stress situation, which may also cost time.
TEEX US&R's new Swiftwater Calculator takes all the guess work out of determining water speed and distance traveled. By using the simple and friendly controls, a user can determine the water speed and the estimated distance traveled in just 4 taps of the finger.
This App is designed for emergency responders who have had appropriate swiftwater training.
However, this App also works for anyone trying to find any item that may have entered the water and wants to know where they should start looking. Think of un-tied boats, ice chests, tubes, etc.
NOTE: This application is not a substitute for Swiftwater & Flood Rescue Training. Users of this application should be appropriately trained Emergency Responders, and should alert local responders or emergency response officials of any emergency incident. The information this Application provides is only an estimate based on the inputs of the user, and the publisher of this Application is not liable for any decisions or actions based upon the data contained herein.
