Members of Valley Water Rescue are willing to speak at your next civic group meeting or event. They would be glad to explain the work of the team and even give the audience a look at some of their equipment.

School visits by team members

We love to talk with kids about water safety and what they should do in a water-related emergency. We offer a classroom a presentation of about 30 to 45 minutes that includes a discussion of life jackets, what to do when someone is drowning, and the dangers of cold water and falling through the ice. One of our divers will "suit up" for the presentation so students can get a look at our equipment.

Our presentation is best suited for children at the elementary school level. It is presented as a community service. To schedule a visit, contact VWR President Pete Fendt at 701-353-3354 or
