Ice Rescue Training

Last night RVFC participated in ice rescue training with companies 31, 50 and Gamber’s dive unit. A 30 minute in-station powerpoint was presented first describing how to secure the scene and methods of rescue.  Then all companies (including E412, E413, S414, SU418, U419 and M415 from 41) went to the Department of Natural Resources game farm off of Gwynnbrook Road in Owings Mills for practical ice rescue training.  A whole was cut in the 8″ thick ice and volunteers in wet suits went into the water and then were rescued.
