Incident Management / Risk Assessment starts the moment you think about a trip. The Olympia Mountaineers Sea Kayaking Group two part Incident Management class / Risk Assessment helps you identify risks and prevent them before they happen, but not all things go as planned so we help you figure out what to have in your bag of tricks and in your essentials that you carry with you. So when things do not go as planned the incident becomes an inconvenience and not something worse. This is by no means a guarantee that it will prevent an incident.
