Tuesday evening, QFD, Bart Township Fire Company and Paradise Leaman Place Fire Company members gathered at the Nickel Mines Swim Club for a night of water rescue training. Paradise brought their new boats and trailer and showed everyone how it is set up and what we can do to assist if they are on a rescue with us. Once the pool closed for the evening, the members took all the rescue gear and boat and practiced using throw bags, life rings, PFD’s, cold water suits and making rescues from the boat. After training and what turned into a cannonball contest, the group was treated to ice cream.
Thanks to all who attended, and to Nickel Mines for allowing us to use the pool. Training together now will make for professional operations later.
