Water Rescue

A water rescue is defined as any incident that involves the removal of victim(s) from any body of water other than a swimming pool.  This includes rivers, creeks, lakes and storm drains, whether still or moving.  Water Rescue presents a significant danger to fire personnel.  The Visalia Fire Department annually trains on this type of rescue, to insure the safety of our fire personnel and the success of rescuing the victim(s).
