On Nov 29 West Mead #1 sent 4 swiftwater technicians to train with the Crawford County Scuba Team. For many years West Mead #1 has supported Crawford County Scuba with divers and line tenders. In recent years the scuba team branched into swiftwater/flood rescue and many West Mead 1 members have taken the training required to respond to these hazards as well. Currently West Mead 1 has 5 swiftwater technicians on the scuba team’s roster on file at PEMA. These members can be deployed anywhere in the state with the scuba team to support water rescue operations. 28-14 is equipped with drysuits, class V pfds, and diving equipment to support this mission.
