This past Saturday morning, 20 members participated in 4 hours of ice/cold water rescue training. Led by Training Officer Melnychuk, members spent the first hour reviewing proper rescue techinuqes and going over all the rescue equipment.
The training continued on Lake Truesdale, where members rotated through different evolutions and scenarios, from a single person through the ice, to multiple persons in need of rescue.
The members were fortunate to be able to take advantage of the roughly 1' of ice. However, always use caution when venturing out on the the ice, the ice thickness varies from place to place. Scroll down to see the "Ice Thickness" guidelines.
