WOODBURY CT – Plunging into freezing waters in an ice-covered pond, firefighters from the Woodbury CT Volunteer Fire Department conducted a ice rescue drill on Saturday morning Feb 1st, 2020. “It’s a winter of thin ice so far, and we want to be ready to save lives,” says Chief Janet B. Morgan. About 15 department members practiced their cold water rescue skills by quickly donning cumbersome wetsuits, moving across ice with and without a sled, and extracting volunteer victims using different methods and different scenarios, said Deputy Chief David Lampart in charge of training. The exercise was led by three instructors from Flash Fire Industries, Monroe CT.
