    Default Anchorage

    Does anyone know anything about the Anchorage FD? I've been looking for information about them but their city website isn't very helpful.

    To jsdobson:

    I've been to the municipality website many times, but really I was looking for "unofficial" websites that hold apparatus and station pics, links, things of that nature. Maybe even some photostories of recent calls you went on. The reason I started this thread is to acquire some knowledge about an FD I don't know much about. Questions like, Do you guys run fireboats being home to a large port? Do you guys have a dive team?, etcetera, come to mind. Oh yes, and also maybe some virtual tours of the apparatus? If you go to www.lafirephotos.com you will see what I mean.

    Nope, we don't have anything like LAFD. They do have a great website.

    As for the couple of questions you listed:

    We do not have a fire boat at this time for the Port of Anchorage. We have a NIAAD rhi that we use for boaters in distress on the Knik Arm (which is part of the Cook Inlet).

    We have a dive team that is divided into three disciplines. Swift water, surface/sub-surface and mud rescue.

    The mud on the shoreline of many salt water bodies is glacial silt and is very unforgiving to those who venture out onto the mud and fail to keep their feet moving. It is not uncommon for people to get stuck up to their hips in their struggle to free themselves from the mud. We use compressed air or water to float the victim out of their predicament.

    PM me a list of questions and I'll work on filling in the gaps for you.
