SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

The Tyger River Fire Department will train this week at the US National White Water School in Charlotte.

According to the school's web site, they offer hands-on training and simulated real life conditions on swift water rescue. The USNWC can change the river to simulate diverse hazards.

The Tyger River Fire Department says cameras will be attached to the helmets of crews in the water, giving a view from the eye of the rescuer. According to the department, three of the Tyger Rivers run through the district making training necessary to serve people living here.
