THE ANSWER TO FIELD SUCCESS IS HERE

Or we get out of the way....

EFFECTIVE REALITY TRAINING FOR RESCUE WATER CRAFT TEAMS

To be effective the selection process of a Rescue Water Craft program is designed for success. If its not it will fail on every action in the field. You will notice the videos presented as clues. They will crop the recovery and they will block out the ending which tells the story of mishaps.

In selecting the requisite and competent personalities needed, they will need to possess the character of an individual whom can endure hardship and continue onward without regard to emotion or bias. This takes some refinement.

Trainees ‘must and should’ be placed under pressure enough to simulate the unknown future response. These calls will never be duplicated in training, they will be placed in a controlled environment, slowly and surely to enable the attendees to grasp one step at a time the reality.

These attendees or candidates will have to wrestle in their mind the values and relationships of the following:
1. The team limitations
2. Equipment being used
3. Environmental and Atmospheric conditions
4. Physical and mental fitness
5. The unknown situation, the most difficult survivor and multiple victims.

It requires to shock a person in and during training on levels in behavioral forward advancements as independent individuals working on a team with multi tasking functions. And under extreme duress. This is a rescue in harms way, otherwise it’s a simple assist.

People will crack in effective training, they will fail. They have the opportunity in short windows to make corrections. If they do not possess the proper fortitude, or reasoning, they must be removed. There should only be victims responding to, not bringing to the scene.

Mindset is the relationship of the Body and its bio mechanic, and its related to the causations on demand.
If we as educators do not prepare and carefully execute purposeful training, and audit the candidates honestly and ethically, we all sink.

Candidates should consider it a privilege to be on a team. They should consider their qualification a privilege based off their merits. They should honor their training and instructors. This is how we create an effective network of qualified and competent professionals.

Or not.

Do not be afraid to fail. Be afraid when you refuse to succeed. If you are not tested under the most severe conditions, methods and standards, you have not been trained properly. You will not be able to aid any person in distress. You will be distracted by a false sense of security. Your failed rescue will shock you. That is not the way to learn.

This work is a calling, it is not a paycheck or a pension. Its in your soul, placed in you at the moment of your creation, it upwells like a spring coming to the surface and flows freely outward. You know who you are, not what you want to be. Nobody can pretend with this.

The uniform does not make you that person, it reminds you of a sacred trust. There are not many servants, there are many pretenders.

Here is what you can do:
Train every day.
Train your mind every day.
Be ready for the call.

We Lead or We Follow

Or we get out of the way....

WHAT IF YOU KNOW MORE THAN YOUR SUPERVISOR or INSTRUCTOR?

Can you educate them?
Can you make suggestions for them?
Can you supply data to them?
Will the EGO BLOCK stop progress?

Yes, it’s detrimental to society, the taxpayer, the team and the department.

These people who are bad leaders need to go away. They cannot lead. And most likely they will not go away until an incident comes under upper management scrutiny, or an investigation or third party audit.

That is if the auditor has courage to say what needs to be said. Not just checking the boxes down a list.

Now lets take a look at ourselves. We don't want to cast the first stone till we have courage about ourselves.

Not to success but failure. How do we fail and how do we hold ourselves accountable for our actions? Do we wait for somebody
else to carry our burden for us while we step gingerly ahead? Honestly, that's not right, but it sure is difficult to master this.

We possess our own unique roadblocks, our shortcomings and defaults. Its hard to turn them around. Its harder to understand where they came from, the genesis and how deeply embedded they are within our mind. Can we change? Or do we expect others to change for us so we can say we did something?

Protect yourself in all ways with a bad leader. They will not encourage your learn but to never learn. Make sure you are not a bad follower or a worse leader, always look back at yourself to wrestle the matter true.

Bad leaders and followers hang together as a protective cover. They will not share with you knowledge so you can meet them on a level playing field. They will not encourage you to evaluate and audit your success. They want you not to progress.

But you need to know that you are not that person first.
And that what you do is not for yourself but for others.
You must learn the way of a servant.
And smote your ego into a place of submission, or you will become a tyrant.

Consider an option. Why not change direction and head towards the unique 5% of personalities who serve without regard for recompense, not looking for a photo opportunity or to pad the paywall.

Try it, you may aspire to something that is not bitter, but better.

Mandatory Engine Cut-Off Switch Use

United States Coast Guard Introduces new Law for Engine Cut-Off Switch Usage

Coast Guard Announces New Law Requiring Use of Engine Cut-off Switches
Mar 10th, 2021 ·

WASHINGTON – Operators of recreational vessels less than 26 feet in length will be required to use an engine cut-off switch (ECOS) and associated ECOS link (ECOSL) as of April 1, 2021, as the U.S. Coast Guard implements a law passed by Congress.

The ECOS and ECOSL prevent runaway vessels and the threats they pose. The ECOSL attaches the vessel operator to a switch that shuts off the engine if the operator is displaced from the helm. The ECOSL is usually a lanyard-style cord that attaches to an ECOS either in close proximity to the helm or on the outboard motor itself if the vessel is operated by a tiller.

When enough tension is applied, the ECOSL disengages from the ECOS and the motor is automatically shut down. Wireless ECOS have recently been developed and are also approved for use. These devices use an electronic “fob” that is carried by the operator and senses when it is submerged in water, activating the ECOS and turning the engine off. Wireless devices are available on the aftermarket and are beginning to become available as manufacturer-installed options.

Each year the Coast Guard receives reports of recreational vessel operators who fall or are suddenly and unexpectedly thrown out of their boat. These events have led to injuries and deaths. During these incidents the boat continues to operate with no one in control of the vessel, leaving the operator stranded in the water as the boat continues on course, or the boat begins to circle the person in the water eventually striking them, often with the propeller. These dangerous runaway vessel situations put the ejected operator, other users of the waterway, and marine law enforcement officers and other first responders in serious danger.

Section 503 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2018 required manufacturers of covered recreational boats (less than 26 feet in length, with an engine capable of 115 lbs. of static thrust) to equip the vessel with an ECOS installed as of December 2019.

Owners of recreational vessels produced after December 2019 are required to maintain the ECOS on their vessel in a serviceable condition. It is recommended that recreational vessel owners regularly check their existing ECOS system to ensure it works, following manufacturer’s instructions.

Section 8316 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2021 requires individuals operating covered recreational vessels (less than 26 feet in length, with an engine capable of 115 lbs. of static thrust; 3 HP or more) to use ECOS “links.” Using the ECOSL is required only when the primary helm is not within an enclosed cabin, and when the boat is operating on plane or above displacement speed. Common situations where ECOSL use would not be required include docking/trailering, trolling and operating in no-wake zones.

The Coast Guard believes that the overwhelming majority of recreational vessels produced for decades have had an ECOS installed, so this new use requirement simply obligates recreational vessel operators to use critical safety equipment already present on their boat.

Seven states currently have ECOS use laws for traditional recreational vessels, and 44 states have ECOS use laws for personal watercraft (PWC).

Boaters are encouraged to check the U.S. Coast Guard website for additional information on this new use requirement and other safety regulations and recommendations.

International Water Safety and Rescue Society Charter

Structure Your Ambition

The International Water Safety and Rescue Society is made of managers, instructors and participants incorporating or cross referencing a variety of skills and response to risk management practices.

This knowledge is that which honors our ancestor’s experiences because this information is ancient in context.

There is no need to ‘learn lessons from an accident’, but to heed our ancestor’s warnings and experiences they handed to us in trust as stewards of these principles of preservation of life.

Our risk culture is imperative to enforcing an effective risk code of conduct and ethics, integrating incentive and performance accountability, defining the responsibilities and roles consistent in defense of risk mitigation.

The society is measured through its communication values determined by the applicable risks.

Participants recognize the specifics of risk and ensure their views on risk align before an incident occurs or assumptions were misaligned with the reality.

Planning is where the stakeholders join efforts under Subject Matter Experts (SME) guidance within this society.

Subject Matter Experts can prove their SME history with verified documentation and their source materials and have the rightful experience to construct and determine the best outcomes based upon these contributing facts.

The frequency and impact of risk response is what an assessment is based upon. Management actions are specifically responsible to reduce the likelihood or negative impact and increase the positives.

However, this is dependent upon the managements agreed upon risk management strategy and practices for their personnel and equipment use.

• Avoidance
• Acceptance
• Monitor
• Reduce controls
• Transfer controls
• Share controls

These responses are based upon action plans with corresponding assignments to the appropriate owners within the management placement hierarchy structure according to the risk levels and warnings.

This is where the risk assessments serve as gatekeepers of response measures.

Emerging risks can bring negative consequence and widespread failure.

Question: What is training?

Answer: Training is an accurate representation of identifiable outcomes to prepare for the assigned risk tasks and testing methods.

Training is a plan to address unpredicted outcomes to prevent errors in order to represent and reintegrate new practices and safety measures before approving a program or its participants.

This is monitored through recurring assessments to ensure functionality and retention of skills.

The society is constructed to develop resilience with the predictable and unpredictable outcomes. To ensure that safety and programs do not experience catastrophic events and to avoid fraud or negligence in the construct of the risk.

This is the voluntary challenge of resilience to avoid catastrophe.

MAVERICKS AND MAVENS

The risk takers are the ones who test and push the risk to new levels because they are trying to learn. They are not found within a department or agency.

They are found in the public, and are a vital construct of agency dependency. They communicate to the world their actions and they are observed for their investments, sacrifices and lessons they tested to save others from catastrophe.

Imitation ensues from these mavericks often without regard for their input, sometimes it is poor, reckless and negligent or substandard practices that mimic these actions. This is where a program can find sustainable or get lost in its own hubris and left behind in innovation and safety.

Often, our society witnesses the catastrophic failures where these experts are dismissed when they should be lauded and given credit due. We can do better in this regard for promotion of a spirit of cooperation.

These are the creators of risk solutions responders rely upon because they are doing; they are risking with their own support measures or lack thereof and funding it themselves with no compensation for their efforts.

Managers, instructors and students are gleaning from their experiences, do not dismiss their historical evidence.

The faculty of conscious is in the ethical orientation morally of that which is good and that which protects property and lives through the actions of those within the society.

ETHICS

The endurance of the safety risk pedagogy and methods are part of a water safety and rescue hierarchy that is designed to protect health, environment, animal welfare, equipment and human safety.

The society deals voluntarily with rebuilding and improving the representation of safety in risk practices.
The voluntary admission of program managers and participants is a team effort.

 Address Challenges and Problems
 Admit and assess Failures.
 Do not reward Accidents, mishaps or failures
 Stop a program when it’s negligent before it becomes gross negligence
 Develop necessary skills and acquire verified equipment
 Budget for the needs and sustainability of program success
 Progress is measurable, maintain effective records for review and accident investigations

Program anomalies are what managers and instructors did not understand or was foreign to them.

This is because their training may have been at or below the status quo and already at risk at its inception.

Program management is consequence of discovery or naivety.

This type of situation creates chaos in programs and actions. When a program was designed with inherent or potential future damages those inherited structures will threaten and damage the program.

Failure should not stop a program; but the failure should be pursued during training so it can be corrected in remedial actions, and progress effectively documented prior to release approval to serve public performance.

The construct is to create a professional and manageable program based on profound and meaningful information that prevents chronic abuse of safety through ignorance and to ensure mission success.

The cure to risk potential or post-accident investigation is securing effective or new information that is garnered outside of the damaged management system, the community and the instructor program or association.

If this is ignored the risk failure will continue to engage. The associated risk is preventable by decisions made in the hierarchy of the structure and individuals who represent this.
Intrinsic manager, instructor, responder values have multiple responsibilities. We have a destiny lined out in our goals and in our participation in these systems.
These responsibilities have to be taken seriously, because your good and your bad affect results. Positive improvement should be a continual and repetitive action and behavior.

THE WHOLE TRUTH

Question: What is a professional responder or manager?

Answer: A person who utilizes a planned and standardized sequence of actions based on tested and authorized behaviors overseen by a third-party assessor for authenticity.

The subsequent results are verified equipment, understanding of the assigned risk of their personnel and its mission; capability to respond (or not respond depending on the severity of the situation) to the level of their qualification successfully.

Professional responders often work on a variety of identifiable teams tasked to a set mission either regionally or outside of their jurisdiction and with additional outside resources (mutual aid) in response to persons or animals in a variety of risk environments.

A. Local Response
B. Natural Disaster
C. Catastrophic Disaster
D. War, Bio or Terrorism Threat
E. Cyber Security Threat
F. Celestial Event

GOALS

1. These actions and behaviors have predictable outcomes
2. These actions and behaviors have assigned roles and rules
3. These actions are evidential facts based off historical experience that is chronicled
• Positive Outcomes
 Public Trust
 Health and Environment protection
 Agency Trust
 Equipment Protection
 Teamwork Flow
 Safety is enabled
 Emergency decisions enacted positively
• Negative Outcomes
 Program degradation
 Instructor Reputation Damaged
 Failure to perform assigned duties
 Equipment damaged or lost
 Accidents
 Injuries
 Death
5. These actions and behaviors should not be repeated after ‘lessons are first learned’

6. These actions and behaviors should be reviewed and updated as new technologies and anomalous experiences are identified

7. Behavioral Training sequenced in steps or stages for retention of the standards and safety practices
• Positive Enabling Outcome
• Negative Disabling Outcome

8. Positive outcomes are based off of a predicted and tested action or behavior
• Planned sequences of response to events based off of past to current knowledge
• Identify the sequences of action and behavior that may contribute to an ascent and to enforce those that may exist for potential downgrades
• Critical review and assessment of after action reports and remedial assigned tasks

9. Negative outcomes are based off of an unpredicted and untested action or behavior

• Unplanned sequences of response to events based off of untested or unknown knowledge
• Retraining to adhere to the ascent and direction of identifiable sequences of actions
• Identify the ascent of mistakes, decisions, sequences, equipment and personnel decisions making processes in the post incident or pre-training objectives for correction

10. Risk levels and Responder stages of professional development and equipment limitations
• Low
• Moderate
• High
• Severe
• Extreme (Go-No Go)
11. Continuation on advancing the trust of planned, predicted, sequences that are decided upon in actions and behaviors to avoid a descent in risk; accident, injury and death prevention

• Enforcement of Academic Honesty
• Program corruption and the growing vulnerabilities of this practice
• Financials challenges
• Personnel issues: Physical fitness, skills conformity, knowledge retention, discipline
• Identification of counterfeit, fraud and plagiary in program or instructor stewardship
• Standards enforcement and conformity
• Professional assessment of Subject Matter Expert curriculum development. Surety that only verified SME’s are drafting the curricula
• Third party assessor for course curriculum and instructor levels
• Verified instructors providing verified courses to student cadre with recurring training and updates

12. These actions, behaviors and equipment have a supporting corresponding annual sustainable budget.

• Measure of performance and records management
• Measure of equipment viability, inspection, purchase
• Recurring Verified Training on a timeline schedule
• Equipment maintenance schedule
• Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
• Replacement of damaged or destroyed equipment or PPE
• Communications suite
• Emergency Equipment and Accessories

Risk management programs (managers-instructors) require monitoring a quality management system that has been audited by a third-party scrutineer for compliance and conformity to international standards.

Risk management programs are driven by five primary determinations:

• Public trust and investment funding
• Regulatory requirements
• Management priority
• Personnel and program safety and education
• Risk levels and Personnel - Equipment capability

Note: Budget not included but a primary driver of program success or failure

These unique risks and attributes are gained through a holistic view of both the society, the agency and the individual to better understand manage each attributable unique risk.

Do not forget to add into this equation the most important factor: the public. Who these people are and what their needs are in a moment of crisis. Their location and situation dictate the needs and response. This is their story and you need to be ready to finish viewing their book to the ending.

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

This aggregated outlook focused on risk exposures regardless of geography, location, team or agency allow our water safety and rescue society to best be able to interact between risks, alternatives and forward-looking scenarios. It also warns us to hold ourselves responsible.

This is the encouragement our society participants need. Be brave through competency, be prepared through actions and practices and be meaningful with your purpose; so, you know what you can do and when you can do it.

This helps to be better organized as an individual and a society and ready for the consequences we entertain.

The destination is not conducted by one person, but it is borne on our individual efforts. We all have a significant role to play in a manner that does not cause harm. Safety is a responsibility; it is also a behavior.

PERMISSION RIGHTS MEAN RESPONSIBILITY

Your responsibility in this society is to participate professionally with appropriate behavior. Your responsibility is to understand the standards and to protect them, endorse them and enforce them with yourself and others. Do not praise incompetent actions or issue praise or reward.

This is each person’s fault and success; collectively we all need to be held responsible and take a code of ethical conduct as a society; knowing you are not alone.

Through this each individual learns their specific role and responsibility within the hierarchy and the safety of those involved.

It begins with a conversation.
It is good.

So help me God.

Faithfully yours,

Shawn

SAY YES OR NO

LEARN

This is a good one! I wrote this for you.

The most important thing in learning is to say 'yes or no'.

Think about this. When and why would you say yes?

Do not be afraid to say no. Often I look at a student and ask them two or three times; do you understand?

Then I ask them to repeat it.
It is obvious they do not know how to say 'no'.

Because they could not answer the question effectively.

It is not good enough to guess or assume.

It is deadly.

Ambiguity cannot exist in success. We must clearly define our intentions or the implications of our
behaviors will be second rate.

Sacrifice by being present in the matter of risk. It is not a word. It is an action.

This is critical.

You must be a THINKING BOATER, we are not trained monkeys, we consider and discuss all risks.

Be genuine, say yes when you are 100% sure, and no when you are 99.9% unsure.

=

Faithfully yours,

NOVEL RESCUE WATER CRAFT TRAINING

CONCEPTS OF DESIGN

It sure wasn’t easy to create Rescue Water Craft training for our maritime community. But it also wasn’t hard because we put in a lot of effort.

We knew the folks who brought the product to fruition. These were chain reaction effects.

We paid attention, and listened to our mentors. We studied, we studied mishaps, history and listened to instructors and associates.

We trained and traveled, build boats and tested equipment, we went all over the world, we chased storms and big waves and worked disasters.

To create Rescue Water Craft training we had to come up with a new schema that did not exist before, why?

When this new small power boat was created; the Jet Ski®, we understood the risk, we knew the accident behavior, we lived it and we raced with those risks. t continue we focused on what every motorized culture did, we created the safety mindset.

That safety culture has saved lives and protected reputations and departments from disaster.

K38 training in itself is Novel due to this product and we were created programs to serve the need and further propel the positive use, and we have achieved this in partnership with thousands of others.

We did not do this alone.

THE JET SKI CREATED THE PATH

It was the beginning of a new era of boating safety pursuits back in the 1970s. The changes in the product lines determined operator behaviors that were not always positive.

It was apparent we would focus on behavioral training and occupational enforcement of those actions. We also lined up with boating safety and the actions that would work with these boat characteristics.

It has not been easy, but we are still here focused on the mission to rev-olutionize lifesaving worldwide using these unique boats.

Working hard is not the entire solution. Being smart is part of it to a small degree of the distribution, but that is really a collective responsibility. It is about a team effort and having true content, consistency and modernization.

There are casual sequences of opportunity within our training hierarchy worldwide. Credit doesn’t always extend to those who are smart, hard-working, the creators, good imitators or bad ones.

The credit goes to the survivors of mishaps who have been positively recovered without additional duress exerted by the responders.

Basically, when instructing, the goals are to enhance the abilities of others and make sure those facts of the spectrum of training are enforced.

Otherwise there will be chaos aka mishaps.

That is why standards run strong on success, they are measured and controllable actions.

You are mandated to be current and to use and seek out the best methods and practices in regard to your boating conduct.

PERFORMANCE ABILITIES

We constantly seek competent people. They may not have the skills initially, but in the selection criteria they have future opportunity.

Operational truth is discovered during the scrutiny of the training attempts, passes and failures. Having desire is not enough, one most understand what a marine unit is and the purposes and rules that back that up.

Its not lifesaving. It’s boating, its seamanship skills, it’s about embracing the precepts of a prudent mariner.

Or it isn’t; and those who aren’t are far too obvious and painful when observed. We want to invite them to change and uplift their chaos into boating safety control.

One of the measures for boating rescue techniques is in the mindset and subsequent performance functions a Coxswains enacts.

How a Coxswain is capable of working under pressure is a great equalizer in maintaining the ‘Seconds and Feet’ performance we have when working in any high-risk zone.

Keep working on your Novel information, ideas, outreach and training.

Set new boating goals, set three at a time and keep refining them.

Check in with your mentors.

Revisit your training doctrines.

Stay in touch with the boating safety organizations and government authorities responsible for boating in your country of origin.

Keep thinking-Keep Learning!

THE LANGUAGE OF YOU

Your body language is your connection to those who can see and are willing to listen

You want to get the attention of others? Watch your body language!

When we work in the water you can forget the pitch of sound for articulate conversation. You can demand your body language to compensate and overhaul communication and direction.

When the search is on, our survivors may have their ears covered in water or they may only hear muffled sounds. Their level of conscious being may be diminished.

Are you ready for some constructive advice?

Are you asking that compromised person to ‘put their hand in the air’? Don’t be a poor imitator or at least do not give permission to mislead your potential. You deserve to know the difference.

Start thinking about what you are doing and the results, don’t just assume its proper or the best method. You may discover a disappointment in your past assessments. And that is a good place to start!

What you can expect if you were trained behaviorally in that worn out catch phrase is to assist your survivor in starting their own drowning process if they are using their arms to stay afloat. Don’t listen to people who tell you that because it’s a corrupt behavior.

You must do all the work for our survivors, 100% of the action, it is not a shared 50/50 split! Behavior shift of expected effort with a better resolution to maintain your tempo of lifesaving time.

Time stated as the race against drowning.

EXPAND POTENTIAL - DO NOT CRUSH IT

Don’t allow corruption to be an invitation to a person who is trying to survive, lend them hope by your actions, how you behave and what you do next for them in the water is what they need to rely upon.

Give yourself permission to provide humanity with your best measure, not your restrictions. You have the influence of authority and action, use it with compassion, kindness, strength and knowledge.

Study every day, don’t stop gathering knowledge and perspective.

Part of your navigational role is to try your best to get their attention, but not by reckless operations.

When was the last time you went into the water you work wearing a pair of swim trunks or clothing and floated for 45 minutes, alone? Like a survivor.

That is part of the language you will be speaking and we say it like this:

Think like the survivor but act like the boat coxswain.

You captain the delivery of an asset you can both depend upon because you care.

Remember this you tell your story by your actions, ways and deeds. Practice being mindful of your body movements.

Does the Rescue Water Craft appear stable when you move?
Do you place the craft precisely where it needs to be?
Do you make contact with the survivor before your boat or TAD does?

PAY ATTENTION

Remember, what people can see they will respond. Those movements may be simple, tapping your hand against the hull, reaching out to them, touching them, how your face looks.

Think about your facial expressions. What does your face look like to others? You are wearing a helmet, maybe a balaclava, perhaps eye protection, what else? Can they see your eyes, are you yelling?

Film them and study your response and others, practice using your facial expressions as a way to make contact, an impression.

The tone of your voice, simple and direct words. Where do survivors eyes track? What are they focused on? Can they hear you or are they in shock, which words would be symbolic to their soul at that moment?

Our behaviors are a constant work in progress.

That means the love you have for your job, for survivors and yourself are the divine of our purpose.

Do not be afraid, be amazing!
