would like to extend a special thank you to the following rescuers
Our partners in Rescue Operations included but were not
Mentor Ohio Fire Department and their Water / Dive Recue Team under
the leadership of Michael D. Ulrich, Commander and Jerry D. Craddock
Assistant Commander. Without the Mentor Fire Department team, who
were involved in the pre-production and both Cold Water Boot Camp
USA and Beyond Cold Water Boot Camp USA Rescue Recover, Re-warm
DVD’s, we would have not been able to accomplish what we have.
Mike Ulrich is a Board Member of the National Water Safety Congress
and Jerry Craddock is the Programs and Instructor Training Coordinator
for the National Water Safety Congress and the Spirit of America
Lake Metroparks Rescue Swimmers under the leadership and training
of Brian Davidson. Brian is a Board member of the National Water
Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Watercraft.
In addition to two “Campers", Randy Feesler and Walt
Hodgkiss, boats and equipment were sent to the BBC RRR program.
Officers on board the boats provide not only the equipment that
was showcased but also the protective services for the “Campers.”
United States Coast Guard Auxiliary provided teams and boats
for the production.
