Nice to see "water rescue" on that list. Guess they need a new rig to wade in 4 feet of water.

Many here may remember a year or so ago when AFD stood by while man drowned because AFD apparently did not have the training necessary to rescue someone in shallow water. I saw some video today of AFD FFs practice throwing a rescue flotation device on an asphalt parking lot!! At least go to a swimming pool!?..JC!

Glad they got a new rig to haul their floaties around with, though...

The rig is paid for by Homeland security funds. Cross-staffed by fire companies.
