Firefighters spent this morning reviewing boat operations at the firehouse followed by hands on skills training on Lake Waccabuc. It was a good opportunity for members to review boat procedures and conduct refamiliarization with the equipment in a controlled environment.
The Department recently acquired a new, inflatable boat, which allows for much safer and efficient water rescues. So far this summer, members have responded to two water rescues; one on Lake Truesdale and one on Lake Waccabuc.
While the Department hopes all our residents have a safe and enjoyable summer, rest assured that firefighters are properly trained and ready to respond to your emergency at any of our community’s lakes.
