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.

OCCUPY YOUR KNOWLEDGE BASE

SAFETY IN ACCURACY

We pay closer attention to our negative emotions so we need to correct this entitled behavior and protect our water safety values by enforcement of the positive values. If we don't do this, with regard to technology we will surrender in media to an increasingly desperate attention market of a new media order that often does not communicate safe practices.

Who are the gatekeepers of reason? We are, you are.

Sensationalism is the determination to capture viewer engagement:

Where people are seeking the negative rather than the content of theory vs capability. This is problematic for us as an individual and for companies like ours its vital to the marketplace.

We are to progress from a base point, and move ahead and continually adjust and correct any measures determined to change due to technology, accessory and vessel changes.

DETERMINE YOUR SOURCES

We ask our student cadre to question and challenge our training methods and provide obverse evidence. Its healthy for all of us to do this, in fact we demand it.

We should all be skeptical when learning and to continue in skepticism to ensure our methods are valid! This is the narrative we need to determine falsehoods.

Our goal is quality content.

Metadata is manipulated by artificial content used by math and algorithm. Real people may engage in social engagement, but its tough to get into that queue when competing with 'mishaps per view'.

One of the biggest media culprits of this is the big wave safety culture, or lack thereof. Mishap after mishap is pushed as viable operations and we cringe in horror. The corporations backing these athletes during these incidents receive the benefits of manipulation by promoting these near death experiences more than the athletes they are on duty to protect! Their athletic prowess is reduced to a side show instead of the pursuit of big wave surfing, rendering the faulty rescue mishaps as click bait opportunities.

These water safety teams do not realize the manipulation they are under and have not questioned if their repetitive mishaps have solutions. These videos will remain as evidence in future lawsuits of the lack of boating safety knowledge, especially with a storied maritime attorney on behalf of a grieving family.

The content creation is sole source, however you see the re-branding industry to push out auto generated videos for businesses, they manipulate the business to business service for attention economy.

We likewise do not put out our training modules in steps online, we invite people to view snippets of our training narrative to determine if it makes sense?

1. Does the practice appear safe?
2. Does it measure up to response need?
3. Is the craft managed competently?

When we study online videos we look for the same observations. We square them up with the end point of maritime safety and seamanship skills.

Make sure this is your aim. And continually aim high and exceed your status quo of standards.

You can make your individual and collective behaviors an operational goal beyond what you assume is correct.
In fact we encourage your to delve further and put time into your research, if you do not, you reap the rewards or you
may reap a serious mishaps or program failure.

Withstand the destruction by uniting your social footprint with research, you will feel better.

HOLD YOURSELF RESPONSIBLE

The Critical Mass is to determine how to discover real people who need real solutions rather than artificial engagement.
Likes, Views and Followers may not be genuine.

It's difficult to resist the modern change in communication. How do we know we are receiving fact vs. fiction? How do we know if we are learning appropriately? You have to research. You must invest your time in education, not following any leader.

B roll, photos and audio are used to create content for legitimate users. This technology can be cleverly downloaded and altered with the algorithms that red flag under fake email accounts or not and auto created content has the influence to change how people think. This propaganda is coordinated vs authentic.

You can also scrutinize sponsors posts, is it one more mishap they are posting after another? Is it one more PWC drama fest? Where are their competent positive posts? How many posts are accurate and represent our seamanship skills? If not, step away from their carnage and write them a professional letter of correction to cease and desist promoting reckless operations of their sponsored athletes or staff members.

REWARD CAPABILITY

DIGITAL DANGER

Reward capability and reject incompetence.

We are surrounded by digital dangers in our water rescue community. Fake News is not reserved for politicians, its invasive in all areas of communication.

We cannot think in a narrow manner, we must look at our heritage. How many of our ancestors in the maritime community lost their lives because of communication or the lack of? Today we have the truth of untruths accepted as fact.

We decide in our water rescue world an ethical potential and we become the consequence.

EVALUATE YOUR SOURCES

EVALUATE YOUR SOURCES

Instagram, Youtube, Facebook and Google are the receptors and deception medium used to influence opinion.

Worst of all imitation which is often poor in procedures and peer review or lacking credibility is the re-post bait. Who was the original source and when was it originally published and is there any criteria missing?

Source the Truth: Algorithm is based on financial revenues for ad extraction. How many videos do you watch now on Facebook and at the midpoint an advertisement comes on? How do we influence using original content against visual propaganda to deprive our maritime community of its seamanship culture?

It is your role to protect our seamanship behavior and culture against the onslaught of fake imitations.

Mishaps and negative activities are the financial motivation of either the poster or their supporters or sponsors. That’s okay in the entertainment world for the purpose of amusement, which we do not represent.

How many Personal Water Craft or Operators are using the word ‘RESCUE’ on their craft, Agency Program, PFD, helmet or written language yet are far from representing the ethos? If you see someone or a group doing this, tell them to remove it and get into training!

We all need to be evaluated, especially the instructor cadre should be scrutinized heavily before they train more liabilities.

HOLD YOURSELF RESPONSIBLE

These individuals and programs must be vetted properly. Their personality and professionalism need to be scrutinized. Programs need to be monitored and reviewed. Just because somebody wants to be ‘RESCUE’ capable, does not mean they will be or are the right fit for the discipline.

That is why the scrutineer process and standards are vital in training as it is in digital media.

Stop the unreliable operations and operators before they kill themselves or someone else. This may be our first lifesaving outreach by enforcing the standard of safety, and not the hollowness of the word. Safety is an action!

Information is made by both flawed and informed people, so understand who is sharing content and why, and if it represents our cultural standard.

If not, these sources need to go away and fast. We do not learn from mishap lessons after the fact, We prevent them from happening in the first place! This starts with you before you allow the maritime community to be hijacked by hacks who have no knowledge on the subject.

Experts are more likely to be correct and accurate than a person who is seduced by the enthusiasm and action, professionalism is a pursuit of excellence, not a protection of accidents and excuses.

Trust expertise, not those who are one step away from killing not only themselves, but those around them.

Know the difference, don't protect this problem and look the other way.

Compassion is part of our responsibility, that means we care about our community and all the brothers and sisters who respond to perilous conditions.

Become the strength.

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.

SACRIFICE

INFLUENTIAL

Some Rescue Water Craft instructors are privileged due to their own self conceived status and these positions may not be favored by the team who knows they don’t have the right to question the hierarchy.

What makes instructors mature is the necessity of the goal, not protecting a kingdom of wrong.

Service as an instructor is a responsibility in saving lives, its a significant burden to bear.

WE ARE BOATERS NOT LIFESAVERS

We are a power boating community, we are to protect, I say protect and defend ‘Seamanship Skills’.

We do not see hardly any Rescue Water Craft instructors worldwide who get this, they may have lifesaving or fire training, but this does not make them a mariner nor a boating safety instructor.

In fact, this may actually make them dangerous.

Training in the maritime community is not lifesaving. Its boating education. Lifesaving is only one function of boat operations.

This is where the fire service and lifesaving services fail our maritime community. They do not separate the two and therefore they undercut the need for seamanship skills. They are essentially killing our maritime community with this mindset.

Social media and news outlet videos do not lie.

In fact, we cringe when we see the potential of risk they endorse without comprehending its negligent or has great potential to cause harm both to their reputation and survivors.

BOATING SAFETY CULTURE

Law Enforcement and the military get it, why? Because they have Marine Units!

They are vested in our boating culture and community and boating law is scripted around the personification of their use for public service and protection.

Most of our trauma comes from fire and lifeguard services and its sadly expanding. If you are in the lifesaving or fire rescue community we implore you to join our boating community and learn about our seamanship skills.
Make them yours, but do not ignore this warning. Heed this advice now, today, this minute.

This is not about pride or ego, it is about service and competency. If I had a tooth that needed work done on it i would not go to an automotive technician, I would go to a dentist.

Lifesaving is not Rescue Water Craft Operations. It is only one facet of multi-use competencies required of a competent and qualified Rescue Water Craft Coxswain.

VISION IS INTENT

SOLUTION

When a program is failing it's time to sit down and review. Is there any corruption in the program design?

Admissions and training that is effective, reliable and purposeful is what the public deserves. The operational ideal needs to be destroyed in programs that are vetted on it, and not on reality.

There is plenty of negative evidence with departments and personnel names attached to the videos and photos to fill our 'what not to do' archives. These are not going to come off the internet and can be used against them in a court of law. They are essentially uploading the evidence against them.

Let’s focus on the positives and lend these Coxswains the proper audience as guardians against reckless and negligent predatory range.

EVIDENCE BASED

The evidence for that is the natural order of nature and its negative patterns of the following:

1. Weather
2. Floods
3. Disasters of various magnitudes
4. Human ignorance of adventure without preparation.

When exposed to something new in the training field we have drama as we call it, but it’s the complexity of danger and its friends. We must face this reality based monolith with courage and knowledge.

By incorporating effective training (emphasize effective) we learn how to adapt at every level of risk. This is a scale we drive and aim high for.

We train to be bigger than the chaos we are surrounded by.

Effective training is to assist and guide those to be exposed in a safe and leveled realm of the extent of our human capability in the risk we will respond to.

Its a complimentary need and oftentimes we are quite restricted.

SAFE

Safety is a determinable scale.

Risk and chaos that is determined in the different types of call outs and environments can be overwhelming. Especially if the training is not set to meet the response. Personnel are held back to their last level of attainable skills or poor instruction.
Make sure you are aiming high and remain unreasonable to some degree. Why? Nature is not concerned with your program, but you better be concerned about the power of nature itself. It's in control 100% of the time and we need to learn to work with it, not beneath its scope.

Sometimes we just don't go, or we close a program, or we upgrade our capability.

ZERO HERO

ZERO

There is no reason to learn from mishap lessons, but there is every reason to prevent them from occurring in the first place!

When mishap admission is confronted, terrible mishaps will stop.

Every Coxswain is responsible for everything that happens to themselves, their team and their operations. Every Coxswain is responsible for the recovery and transport of survivors.

This does not mean getting lucky or dismissing reckless operations underway.

DISHONORABLE MENTION

These operators allow the repeat of potential tragedy because they are willing to hold themselves in risk behaviors that are reckless, dangerous and negligent.

These operators will fight like mad to protect their mishaps and flaws and promote dangerous practices with a passion that would be better reserved for some humble admissions of wrong.

They are not a Hero, they are an Adversary. This makes them destructive.

THE CURE

Make sure first your program is not the problem. Assess your program functionality by having an accredited boating safety instructor with current credentials assess the program. After that its time to tackle personnel issues.

1. Remove them from operations.

2. Roll back to training and remedial action.

3. Document with accuracy the inconsistencies in operations.

4. Counsel with appropriate operational behaviors.

5. Enforce them.

Safety is a way of being. It is not a certificate. It is what that individual does with the knowledge that makes or breaks operations. Stay steady, stay true and remember that risk is not a word, its our friend challenging us to be responsible.
