Ice Dive Drill – Sampson’s Pond - March 4, 2007

It’s really amazing what some people will do to avoid crowds at the beach! With the water temperature hovering between 34 and 40 degrees depending on who’s thermometer you read, a Dive Team member’s commitment to the department and the residents of the community certainly can’t be questioned as he practices rescue techniques under the ice. Of course the air temperature was also about 38 degrees with a gentle 12 mph breeze to keep one from overheating when coming out of the water. We are very fortunate to have a Dive Team so dedicated and well trained here in Carver. Click on any picture to enlarge it. (Photo’s by Firefighters Rob Reardon and Kris Durling and guest Tim Geiss)
