BELLINGHAM, WA – Mustang Survival is proud to support the International Association of Water Rescue Professionals (IAWRP), launching at the 2013 Fire Department Instructor Conference (FDIC). IAWRP is dedicated to supporting individuals and organizations that are involved in all aspects of water rescue operations by keeping its members abreast of advances in training, equipment and life saving techniques. The organization will also provide a conduit between the user community, industry and regulatory agencies to ensure the needs of its membership are presented and met.

“As we look ahead, we see a growing need for collaboration and open communication within the water rescue community,” comments Dave Abt, Business Development Manager at Mustang Survival. “IAWRP is an ideal vehicle to foster this type of communication and advancement. Water rescue is one of the most dangerous activities within this community and, as an organization they will be able to help reduce that risk by driving standardization and building public awareness. We look forward to developing a relationship with IAWRP in order to keep current on changes within the industry and broaden our knowledge and expertise to continue to provide value to our customers.”
