"Nancy Rigg is an amazing source of information for families who have lost loved ones to drowning. In addition to support, we were encouraged to educate ourselves about our grief, drowning awareness and prevention, and how to help others. Russ is meeting Nancy on September 15th, if all goes well on his journey.
In 1992-93, Rigg worked closely with local public safety agencies, including the Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles County Fire Department and Lifeguards, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to establish a pioneering multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional swiftwater rescue program to "Give victims who are swept away in floodwaters a good chance to be rescued," says Rigg, "and protect first responders who need to perform swiftwater rescue operations and keep them safe in this extremely dangerous environment. The Los Angeles swiftwater and flood rescue program has served as a model worldwide.
"We wish Russell Reddick a safe journey," says Rigg.
"I was totally isolated when Earl was swept away," Rigg explains.
Rigg notes that drowning is a year-round threat.
