Dog Rescue – John’s Pond - February 16, 2006

Let the pro’s do it. The person who spotted this dog through the ice called the fire department right away. Deputy Germaine arrived first, donned the cold water exposure suit, which is carried in his cruiser, and went out and saved the dog. If he had problems, the CFD Hovercraft as well as more exposure suits were responding also. Very routine with a happy ending. The Dep even got a big kiss! All too often children or even adults try to rescue dogs, and become victims themselves. (Photo’s by Firefighter Gerry Farquharson)
