Car Fire – Ferreira’s Salvage Yard - May 4, 2007

Our Dive Team spent some time using air bags to lift a submerged object prior to launching the a new UNDERWATER VEHICLE PROP constructed by the team. A Toyota Camry was acquired free of charge and prepared for training use in Deputy Weston’s shop. They removed the motor and everything that could possibly contain oil or hazards to the environment. Even shock struts which contain oil were removed and replaced with custom made metal brackets. The vehicle now sits in 15 feet of water and will give team members the opportunity to perform simulated rescues of a training mannequin from inside a vehicle. Police as well as neighbors were made aware of the prop. (Photo’s by Chief Craig Weston)
