Flood Rescue Boat Operations


The purpose of this manual is to provide a basic reference for Flood Rescue Boat Operation. It is intended for use in planning, training and operations by all relevant disaster/emergency personnel and organisations.

This manual has been developed by a national working party representing State and Territory emergency services. The working party was initiated and sponsored by Emergency Management Australia.

As situations chagne and improved techniques are developed the manual will be amended and updated by the national working party.
