We have taken the U.S. Marine Corps’ Marine Combat Water Survival manual and turned it into a paperback book for easy reading and reference.
This book makes Marine Corps water survival training and know-how available to anyone that wants to learn it. If you are on boats or around water a lot, the skills learned from the USMC could save your life. You will learn:
- survival at sea
- water rescues
- treatment of casualties
- avoidance of dangerous marine life
- negotiating water obstacles
- fording waterways
- knot tying
Marine Corps Reference Publication (MCRP) 3-02C, Marine Combat Water Survival, provides Marine Corps combat water survival techniques, procedures, and training standards. This publication also teaches Marines to cross water obstacles and per-form water rescues correctly and safely.
This publication is the foundation for teaching Marines correct water survival techniques and procedures that are used through-out the Marine combat water survival program (MCWSP). Once an individual or a unit has completed the MCWSP, this publication can be used as a refresher course before water operations.
