Tonight members showed up to training, the only thing they were told was to dress warm. Upon arrival to the station they were told you have one victim stuck in the center of a pond(an orange ring buoy) on soapstone hill road your time starts now. Crews arrived and successfully retrieved the victim using a tether system. After the first rescue a second one was done. Great job to all who participated. Now for anyone trained in ice rescue this was an exercise designed to point out where things can be impproved and a learning tool for our members who do not have ice rescue training. Everything was supervised and nobody was in danger at anytime. Everybody was reminded of the importance of wearing a proper pfd and not wearing bunker gear near water. Everybody went away learning something new and overall it was a great learning exercise. We train hard so when we are called for real we are ready to perform our job proficiently and safely so everybody goes home. Please keep any negativity or Monday morning quarterbacking off of a public forum. Feel free to contact me with any thoughts or concerns. Thank you Dan Appel Assistant chief (717) 808-7837
