The Marietta Fire Department designed the course in 2009 to train firefighters in their department to complete dangerous water rescues. Over the years, the MFD continued to refine the class and opened the course to other local and state agencies, fire departments, and the military. This specific course trains students in lifesaving methods in a flood or swift waters caused by heavy rains, hurricanes, or other natural disasters.
