Ice Rescue Training

You Great River Fire Department spent the morning on ice. ┬áMembers headed out on the ice at the boat ramp at Heckscher State Park to brush up on their ice rescue skills. With the assistance of firefighters on land, Firefighters Gormley and Llobell raced to rescue the “victim” approximately 40 yards out in the marina. While the winner of the race is debatable, the “victim” was ultimately brought to safety quickly by the teamwork of the crew.
