    Each year our local boy scout troop joins our fire department for our annual ice rescue drill. This year 4 boys joined in and learned how to get out of the ice and make rescues by reaching and throwing. This helps the boys complete their Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge. A great time was had by all. IMG_1183.JPG IMG_1186.JPG IMG_1198.JPG

    Well done !! Not only will it teach the Scouts how to react in an emergency, but no doubt that they will pass the information along to other troop members on how to be safe when around ice conditions. If your department is a volunteer or combination department, it can be a boon to recruiting efforts as well. :thumb:
