Water Rescue

Water rescue situations pose a unique hazard to responding emergencies. In order to combat these circumstances, The Elyria Fire Department utilizes a well-trained water rescue team. 7 members of Local 474 are trained and certified to perform swiftwater rescues and openwater dives. In addition, many members of this team are certified ice divers. These members are critical to the successful rescue of citizens involved in a water related incident.
