FUNDAMENTALS

BUILDING A SAFETY CULTURE

If program directors or worse yet their developers are not fundamentally astute in our boating safety culture, they would be better off with a conservative approach for the path of moving forward that would generate the least amount of error.

However, we see an extreme forward movement that creates a great amount of harm.

Otherwise, confusion and a lack of established operational goals are a given. And they will happen.

Our boating traditions should be adhered, this means you become a mariner or you were one already.

What does ‘being a mariner’ mean? Seamanship skills, not rescue skills! Rescue is just one little corner of what we do when we go to work. And our field preparation is 85% of that role.

A large majority of these lifesavers are not going to study seamanship skills, and will not put time into developing them.

Especially in their group if the one they follow resists our culture, they will resist in concert. Instead they will protect the comfort of ‘getting by with it’ until a mishap forces them to face our maritime reality.

EXPERIENCE

The problem we have is the inherent cultural worth is reduced people will give that up to get more for less.

Our ancestors gave us meaning for boating and water safety. When we define the facts and the objectives of what our water safety reality is, we make agreements on constraints of what we should do.

We conduct ourselves with rules and regulations and what we should do evidenced by prior mishaps.

Do not wait to create a mishap and then review it and prompt the trite comment of ‘we will learn lessons from this’. We already learned and we won’t create an accident. They have it backwards!

Social connection has created groups that protect their territory rather than look at our true heritage. In fact they ignore it at all costs drawing attention back to themselves. They are not community based.

They look at their department, their team vs. the other team, even if they have mutual aid, the dominance of one group over another smothers our safety reality under perceptions of competitiveness.

They have lost the structure and the ethic of acting in a professional manner that keeps us away from mishaps.

Instead these groups prefer to stay comfortable in potential risk and will do anything to stay there. Who doesn’t know that it’s a law to wear a USCG properly fitted, and type of Lifejacket? Yet we see many who resist this basic life support and they call themselves lifesavers!

VALUE

How many get underway with a painter line hanging on their bow? The list is long like an infection these poor habits spread in migration of others not knowing what a maritime community is, and therefore they are not part of it.

What is our objective? Is it the structure of protecting their ego for the sake of service that important? It is when there is no agreement in a shared reality of objective facts that we have two different ways to look at how our community functions on optimal stability. This has been going on for centuries.

Children will negotiate and they do it by getting together and playing with one another, they look at other viewpoints, and they start to play pretend roles and they act it out, and they all play the game together to learn.

Watch how you act. Tell your story. Observe the story consequence.

Be willing to play with one another and see other viewpoints.

Play together.

Play Fair and Listen.

MOVING FORWARD

TRADITIONS MATTER

Doing what everyone else does, does not always mean that things are moving forward.

Bound by our former traditions we must adhere to a mindset of updating those traditions and be bound to ‘moving forward’.

There are a lot of incompatible versions that were created two decades ago and worked fine then, but the craft have changed!

EXPERIENCE

We have to be judicious in updating our knowledge base.

This is why Certification for qualified Coxswains is based on a 3 year tenure. There is a lot that changes in those three years! You can tell this looking at your 6 year old child who is now 9.

Experience is a continuum.

To increase potential and safety, our operational facts must be translated or transferred into values. This is to be protected by standards which are laws or rules of engagement.

It takes all those thousands of facts and translated them into inherent values. There is not one, is is a complication of the following:

1. Water and Weather
2. Type of Rescue Water Craft
3. Maturity and Learning level of Coxswain and Crew
4. Program development AND management
5. Review of mishaps
6. Training with purpose

VALUE

This collaboration of needs is to create a rationality of what needs to be represented in the program itself to sustain it.

Training allows Coxswains and crew to decipher the responsibilities and apply it to the ‘decision in action’.

Otherwise it’s a zero summation of potential mishaps that are welcome to advance.

This only works is the construction of program management is not a proposition but a community adherence of standards. When one community decides to make a standardization for our circle but has no knowledge and poor representatives, they will create poor results.

Who gets blamed?

Their students will be faulted. Because their instructors will not be scrutinized and neither with the program developers. They designed in essence a support structure of failure.

That is the bottom line of the problems we see worldwide, is these people did not create the training, do not know the boats, have not me the different users and waterways needs, but we have. We know this business and can see the failures within. I am encouraging you to look beyond your paycheck or your ego and look at the results.

How many mishaps, do you know how to rebuild your pump? Have you taken a qualification course based on 40 hours of instruction? Do you have your basic boater education? Do you have over 1,000 hours at the helm, or 100?

Your story is being told by the questions you ask, and the answers will help you with one thing; Seamanship skills.

Don’t let them die because of apathy.

FACE YOUR WORK COURAGEOUSLY

YOUR FUNDAMENTAL WORTH

When you face your work with courage you have fundamental worth, you have presence in the moment of peril that others can depend upon.

It’s not easy is it though? You had to attribute a lot of your time and value to your professional development.

You can associate your professional and personal values to the structure of your rescue work.

A few of the attributes of character that are determined to be or become this person are:
1. Sacrifice
2. Technique
3. Study

Work in a manner that sets you apart from what others do around you. Lead by being that man or that woman. Don’t capitulate to being less. Strive, push, drive; do everything you can to stay the course of technical advantage.

CONTINUE TO BE GOOD

Study means your sacrifice and technique are in a continual for progression. You never stop learning, you hunger to know what is the next best training method, equipment or Rescue Water Craft. You train yourself; you research and you stay safe and protect your reputation and those you work with.

Not everyone is ‘rescue good’. We know some of you are pulling the weight for others, wishing you could speak up but have to remain silent, wish you could encourage change but the doors are shut.

Keep being you, keep representing Character in professionalism. Being good is an extremely difficult position, but the only other option is catastrophe. You were not designed for chaos but to bring the good through the bad times.

CLEAR!

Having the bearing of a commitment is the most difficult thing to do because it requires sacrifice.

You pay attention to the weather and you measure up the ‘Go-No Go’ so you can prevent a disaster.

You know when to do something and how it need to be done with effective techniques. You also recognize how quickly things fall apart if you step outside of the framework of good.

You understand that bad things are going to happen and that you are the one who responds to them with your team, and you all need to be working in concert for success. Your focus is to come home safe.

All of us can visually see the truth of the operational evidence that is suggested by safety actions in these unique people, and we know you are one of them!

EMERGING BEHAVIORS

Not All Knowledge is Equal

Emerging behaviors are a part of continuing education, science and development.

This idea of emergence has been around since at least the time of Aristotle!

Definition of emergency
1: an unforeseen combination of circumstances or the resulting state that calls for immediate action
2: an urgent need for assistance or relief the mayor declared a state of emergency after the flood. *

Attributed origin: Mid-17th century from medieval Latin emergentia, from Latin emergere ‘arise, bring to light’.

Emergent human behaviors are influenced. We like to focus on education and physical behaviors based off the mindset of knowledge a Coxswain pools or draws their selection process from.

REQUIRE CORRESPONDING ACTIONS

Effective training is coordinated to relieve the possibility of chaos in our maritime community. Chaos generally arises during the stages preceding a mishap.

We can align them from a beginning point of program inception, vessel and equipment selection, maintenance training and enforcement, recurring training, adaptive maritime standards and subsequent reviews.

When we initiate a training program in motion with a group of individuals the experience, maturity and physical levels are varied.

There are a lot of considerations to entertain in drawing up the expertise and the lack of knowledge and merging it into one unified and consistent motion.

This collective is a continual process of education which focuses specifically on tier level skills and evaluations corresponding with corrections and continual dialogue. Agencies need to adopt this same behavior for their program management.

TRANSCEND COMFORT

To do so competently requires a set of rules, laws or guidelines. Or we could call them standards. Typically based off past experiences ranging from positive to tragic.

We look to the boating safety community for the guidelines to proceed forward. We look to the coxswains in the field mishap reports and after-action reviews to determine how to modernize. What works and what is a dead end and needs to be discarded or modified?

But they first need to be challenged appropriately.

The success of training is dependent upon the trends, products, equipment updates, electronic migrations that continually evolve and interfacing with the select water type of operation.

You can increase your program efficiency if you do the following:

1. Ask your personnel to challenge a current training evolution with evidence opposing it.
2. Be willing to trial it in safe conditions.
3. Evaluate the results with everyone on board.
4. Video the demonstration and study it.
5. Review it again.
6. Final consensus review
7. Solicit outside peer review

That my friends are how we do this at K38, and we think it will work great for you.

*Merriman Webster Dictionary

ASK ABOUT YOUR WORST BEHAVIORS

CONCEPTUAL SCHEMES OF LEARNING

ASK ABOUT YOUR WORST BEHAVIORS – IMPROVE FOR THE BEST RESULTS

When you ask about your worse behaviors, be ready to hear the truth. Evaluate and determine the resulting changes that are needed. Put them into motion and self-assess. Ask your instructor for additional advice or corrections.

Question the results.

It is up to you to decide how you want your Coxswain seamanship skills to develop. You can expect two metrics; good or bad.
What interactions in the field by your vessel and water knowledge can determine safe speeds, a competent program and reduce failures and to be able to communicate and negotiate for a secure operation.

PRUDENT MARINER

We cannot control the weather or the water conditions. However we can control ourselves. When we know where our capabilities last rested, we can appreciate that we are capable of much more!

Do you have a perception or a conceptual idea of what you limit is? Trust me, there is more. Perhaps you are too comfortable and
you haven't taken time to stay updated. There is nothing worse than to close the book and forget what you learned.

Pull out your training notes and review them.
Watch your training videos and look for the useless points of action and signal the highlights of potential.

STRUCTURE OF REALITY

If you don’t do that you are going to continue to develop unsettled disputes that will arise during operations and those options you entertained it the beginning of your training need to be tested. If they work, improve upon them. If you still cannot secure a stop or operate with efficiency and technical advantage, something is wrong.

Negotiate for a better program. Begin with yourself. Your actions will tell your story, but you must pay attention to them and create a metric of success or failure. From there you can determine if your course is dysfunctional or safe.

PRETENDERS FAIL IN ACTION

TRUTH IS A CONSTANT SEARCH FOR SAFETY

Fake Digital Safety News is a big part of our maritime community and its hard to beat the down turned results and the problems that are generated from the viewers lack of loyalty and research.

Do your homework! Don’t be duped by subversive activity that keeps you from learning, seeking knowledge and protecting our maritime safety behavior.

When you see a video that is obviously slanted towards sensationalism, seek the authentic rules of engagement for professional development!

SPEAK UP

Speak up against unsafe practices by asking ethical questions to the poster.

Be willing to defend safety, and not succumb to polarizing our seamanship skills by silence.

The strategy of counter measure for quality content is part of your personal and professional protection. Reputation does matter, in fact it saves lives. Don’t be seduced by the pretty pictures.

HOLD YOURSELF RESPONSIBLE

Now that we have had a decade of digital influence to determine the negative impact and our past participation thereof on social media, we have a flawed gauge to correct.

We have progressed along with our equipment.

Our practices have adjusted.

We learned from incidents and promised not to repeat them.

We strive to reduce mishap and injury potential in a risk filled world.

We are not risk aversion focused, we know we must train to the reality of risk.

Unethical digital influence of our maritime culture begins with any negative desire to argue and fight or pleasure taken in the failures of others instead of counter measures of trustworthy data supporting our sacred public trust.

This declines our community solidarity and does not allow us to progress and as united culture.

Don’t be taken advantage of by not being smart enough to decline, decipher and decide the difference between professionalism and hack digital sensationalism preying on our human vice.

WE CARE ABOUT YOU

BE COURAGEOUS

We care about you, and we want you to be courageous for the job, not for the hype.

This means you make a decision everytime you place your program in motion. What are you choosing?

Is 'safety' a word represented or is it a behavior? Or is it misrepresented under the guise of water safety?

There are 2 teams in today's water rescue arena:

1. Those who live water rescue methods as a way of being and are disciplined and take time to develop programs and knowledge.

2. Those who are poor imitators taking short cuts with disregard to the reality of safety and whom invite risk to cause harm.

ATTENTION ECONOMY SAFETY DEFICIT

How can we determine safety fact vs. reckless fiction in a digital world where people are desperate for attention?
It is more obvious now than ever our maritime heritage is at war with incompetent representations that are mirroring good works to undermine safety at sea and seamanship skills.

The mass manipulation of the reflection of social discourse is spreading unsafe boating and lifesaving practices and behaviors. The outlet forum is the internet we access on a variety of devices and we can be a significant part of the problem, or we are the sole ‘professional’ solution.

STRUCTURE OF REALITY

Digital discernment requires education and research. Let’s take a focused look at the ‘dumbing down’ of our maritime safety and security which follows in tack with just about every other subject on the net.

Being a Prudent Mariner is your responsibility. It takes effort, time and consistency on your behalf to debunk poor information.

You can triumph over pointing out what is wrong. There may be problems for this, but that should never stop you.

You need to risk what is right instead of endorsing with is wrong.

Discovering this reality after a horrible tragedy should never have these words attached to it:

We will learn from this accident.... because that never happens, its just repeated, and often.

LIVE NOT DIE

CONCEPTUAL SCHEMES OF LEARNING

Learning is leading. Your decision making is a process, its part of your courage, your creativity and subsequent action.

Stop relying on your conceptual schemes and thoughts, you have to put the element of the risk of nature and human action into the mix, this elevates your character as a Coxswain.

This is how you find the solutions to the problems you will encounter when underway on a small high risk craft in dynamic conditions.

PRUDENT MARINER

A good Rescue Water Craft instructor will not solve the problem that a student coxswain candidate needs to learn.

This causes great harm to their safety.

The student candidate cannot be disarmed in the face of natural chaos, they must be ready and strong to make the best decisions in a moment of peril or at speed when quick thoughts are inherent to personal safety.

Rescue situations are not a place to waste personnel, training time and funding. The investment should be grounded in the rise, not the fall of a political program that does not care about reputation and is willing to kill its own people.

STRUCTURE OF REALITY

If there is a collapse of a on-water rescue or Rescue Water Craft training course, it is an indication of internal corruption aka 'lack of prudent mariner skills'.

If an agency is conducting remedial program review (hopefully they do this annually) and they do not bring in an outside maritime subject matter expert of their inner circle, they are going to recreate the same nightmare if they have recurring mishaps or mechanical RWC failures.

It’s impossible for these groups or teams to succeed, they are afraid to experience the ethical success of public service in the maritime community.

Reality is our best measure of competence. Use the owners manual for the make, model and year of production of your Rescue Water Craft.

1. Make sure your Coxswains are certified annually or every three years.

2. Make sure your Rescue Water Craft instructors are certified annually, yes that is every year!

3. Make sure you review your program annually with an outside subject matter expert.

4. Make sure you have a maintenance program for all your equipment needs and an annual inspection.

Ensure that you are willing to discard an ideal rather than protect and endorse a flawed program that is not based in maritime law, rules, regulations and boating safety.

RESEARCH

SEAMANSHIP SKILLS

THE THREE R’S
Ah, yes that well worn and abuse word 'risk'. Lots of measures have be slung at risk. Risk assessment, risk aversion, risk management, risk mitigation, risk levels. Life is risk the moment we are born, we have not make friends with the chaos to understand how to work with it.

Rescue Water Craft operations are high risk. Very high risk. The greatest risk is the mindset of those at the helm. What they do know and what they do not know. Let's step back for a moment and reflect on research concepts that can help us make peace with the devil we boat with.

Take a break here on these three R's:

1. Research
2. Reflect
3. Review

WE ARE BOATERS NOT LIFESAVERS

None of us can solve these unless you choose to go backwards and become weaker. We work in an unsafe environment, sometimes we have to retreat to move forward. Take apart our programs and restructure them or add to them. What we did last year will not work this year, everything is changing.

When you train you need a mentor, but ideally you need to be your own mentor. This will make your responsible and that is the social contract we need to endorse for our seamanship skills.

A subject matter expert aka an instructor will not solve the problem for you, they will allow you to discover the problem and deal with the realm of selection.

MENTORSHIP

This means your instructor(s) or mentor(s) have provided you with the terms and conditions of risk potential and the scheme of natures complexity.

They show you your delivery process and they focus on the ending. They allow you to learn and do not hold your capability hostage.
They must know the answers to the questions. They cannot guess and neither can you. You both need answers that lead to the functionality of high risk safety in a high risk environment so you don't become a statistic.

Question your training. Does it feel right? Does it line up with safety? Does it look unsafe? If it does, speak up and ask for an answer. Challenge the safety in training at all times. This is important for you and the instructors.

Protective training programs are destructive, they must be functional and modern. Otherwise you lose the knowledge potential which is replaced by a safe place nature will not respect and that creates and endorses a regressive program that will cause harm.

If your program is not able to confront danger and risk, shut it down. Start over. This is a great solution for a problem that can take people down a wormhole of wrong.

Confront your program and your program and personnel can grow. That is how we learn!

COURAGE

SEAMANSHIP SKILLS

Being a mariner is a thousands year old calling of boat wrecks, capsizing and drownings in our wake.

Seek a mentor or qualified boating safety instructor who realizes ‘that what is fatally flawed in training that they have already discovered’, they can help their students with the limit, until they reach the limit of their instructor.

Safety is a behavior, it is not a word or a phrase. It is an ACTION!

WE ARE BOATERS NOT LIFESAVERS

And hopefully both instructors and Coxswains have the courage to go beyond and continue to modernize the rescue mindset for Rescue Water Craft operations.

Do not be held hostage by a training manual.

Seek the creators of the discipline who are living it, as it if were their life.

We adapt through our training methods and demands because it is not complicated to comprehend the reasons why. Its the probability of patrol, response, search and recovery. It's also a part of that necessary maintenance territory we must endorse 85% of the time. 15% of your operations may be in the field on the water, the rest is program maintenance and recurring training.

We can scale our adaptation to the order of safety.

MARITIME SECURITY

Collectively through mutable experience levels and personnel discussions, we can scale our adaptation to the order of safety.

we can scale this up to the order of how the ocean moves, how the river flows, how the weather bears down in the negative.

How do you know the full extent of your capability?

You train, by repetitive exposure to methods in these elements that bring out your flaws and in isolated actions and exact pieces of evaluation and assessment brings you to a competency level once you reach your training limit.

Keep training, but make sure its effective and you know your equipment and the water. Do not become a potential victim.

Be courageous or open the door to become a statistic.
