    Cool

    My Department's personnel have all been trained in confined space and trench rescue operations. We have an equipment trailer with all of the equipment for confined space and trench rescue at headquarters.

    Water rescue operations are done by the dive team, which also has a dedicated trailer with their equipment at HQ. We do not have much "swift water" per se, but we have a recreational lake and a couple of reservoirs that can pose a problem for us.

    We also have a high angle rescue team.
