This past Saturday, your West Lake Firefighters were out training on Ice Rescue.
Our Water Rescue Team, which is comprised of 20 highly trained members drilled on self rescue, team rescues and our various equipment including our RDC and Marsar Board.
Our team uses the most up to date Water Rescue gear for ice rescue, which is comprised of a dry suit and PFD or a Mustang Ice Suit. The dry suits are custom fit to our members ensuring they are dry and buoyant when on the ice.
These pictures were taken at the Waterworks Pond on Presque Isle State Park.
