Unified Fire held a swift water rescue class on the Provo River on Friday afternoon, in preparation for fast-moving water.
Firefighters say they are dealing with record high water levels this spring from a large snowpack and rain.
They also say while the rivers are high, the training will help prepare them for a potential disaster.
Firefighters say the National Guard helps them with water rescues by flying them in, and then they jump in the water to save people in the cold, fast-moving water.
