Dive Team Ice Diving Drill – Hall Bog - February 2, 2014

Carver Fire Dive Team Members, under the careful instructions of Dive Master/Lieutenant Josh McDermott, geared up for Ice Dive scenarios at our Hall Bog training site.  Diving under the ice is extremely dangerous, but our Dive Team must be proficient in their skills if needed to rescue someone who has fallen below the ice.  All safety precautions are in place for these technical dives.  Divers utilize safety ropes, underwater communications systems, full face masks and hand held sonar to navigate safety and efficiently under water.  A rescue diver is always at the ready to assist if something goes wrong while the diver is under the ice.
