Ice Rescue Drill

At the Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department, volunteers don’t only respond to emergencies, but they also dedicate their time to learning and perfecting effective rescue skills.  Tonight, 2/24/15, the WVFD volunteers spent time in the classroom learning practical rescue skills before executing ice rescues out in the field.  With these skills on board, WVFD crews will be appropriately prepared for any winter rescues that may occur.
