PFD drills have started

Pend Oreille Rowing and Paddling Association

Drills to train members on how to use the inflatable PFD belts have started.


On Sunday July 27th, 6 members performed the drill, getting in the water in their rowing clothes. While floating they moved the PFD belt to their front, got the tab out of it's pouch, pulled on it, depolyed the inflatable bag and got the strap over the head for propper flotation.  Once confirmed, they swam back to shore.


PORPA has bought enough 16gr CO2 cartridges to replace the used ones during the drills.
