TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Maumee River is still
very much frozen with snow and ice, but with more mild temperatures coming
later this week, Toledo Fire and Rescue wants to be ready for anyone who takes
Under the watchful eye of
members of the US Coast Guard, 12 members of the Toledo Fire Department's Water
Rescue Team put in three hours of valuable ice training Tuesday afternoon.
Toledo Fire recently
bought several new rescue tools, including a boat called a rapid deployment
aircraft, which inflates in just 45 seconds.
Another tool they recently
acquired is a rescue sling, which can be used to pull a victim onto the boat.
The Water Rescue Team
began this formalized training several weeks ago, and with the spring thaw
coming, it's the perfect time.
"When we're surrounded by
water like this, you always keep in mind that it is really difficult to tell
how safe that ice actually is," said Lt. Matthew Hertzfeld. "That's why our recommendation is to stay off
the ice. We realize folks aren't going
to do that, and that is why you see what's happening."
