Over the weekend three members from the Lower Swatara Fire Department participated in a Water Rescue Emergency Response Class hosted by Middletown Fire Department. Over the course of the three day class members learned many different skills. For example members learned how to self rescue, use throw bags to rescue victims in the water, and over come obstacles in the water. Members also learned about the dynamics of the water and how powerful the water is. These were just a few examples of the many tasks, skills, and knowledge that was covered throughout the class.
