Three Chester County Fire Companies took advantage of the high water and fast current to practice river rescues on the Susquehanna this afternoon. The companies carried out exercises for several hours near Columbia River Park.
PA Water Rescue Instructors Todd Stahl (L) and Alex Myers (R) provide instructional training to the Chester County Rescue Taskforce members. Students representing Alert Fire, Lionville and Fame Fire Companies attended the 16-hour training of Boat Operations.
Stahl, a former Columbia resident and Myers (Craley) are pioneers of the water rescue instructing industry. Both instructors have been providing safety, training and education to our First Responders since 1997 throughout the Keystone State and surrounding states.
