Environmental Work
Wave Trek Rescue has been involved in environmental clean-up projects requiring the deployment of booms in swiftwater as part of the clean-up process. As a specialized Haz Mat Spill Response team, our group has focused on deployment techniques in the river environment. We are excited to develop our work in this area further as part of our commitment to river stewardship, either through consultation or instruction. Please contact us for more information.

Movie Safety and Stunt Work
Chris and her team of rescue instructors have set-up safety to run support for actors and stuntmen doing whitewater action shots for movies. Chris herself has been a stunt double for whitewater action shots requiring a veteran whitewater swimmer or boater. If it involves rope or whitewater we can ensure the safest approach to the shot. Please contact us for more information.
