How do you handle Ice rescues?
How does your department handle ice rescues. With the recent low temperatures the public lakes and rivers have been frozen over since the middle of December. Earlier this week we had an incident where a dog (luckily not a human)had fallen through the ice and the owners called 911. Luckily the dog had gotton out before we arrived on scene. The Ice thickness in our area this year has not got over 8 inches, we are not as fortunate at the northern states. If you have any sugestions it would be greatly appreciated.
