The training included rescues using static lines with paddle-powered boats making rescues easier in rapidly flowing waters such as the raised levels near the spillway dam on Alum Creek.

It was also an opportunity for training on the department’s new outboard motor powered rescue boat. The higher level of Alum Creek after recent storms gave instructors and students an opportunity to train in access, travel, and safety in rapidly flowing water.
