Firefighters train for ice rescues

1 min read

Members of the Reno Fire Department’s Water Entry Team (WET) on Wednesday took advantage of recent cold temperatures to conduct water rescue training in a frozen pond at Idlewild Park.

Those in training equipped themselves with cold-water gear, made their way out onto the ice and rescued either a live human simulating a victim, someone hanging on the ice, or a human-shaped dummy from under the water.

Kevin Joell, a captain with the department, said ice in the Reno area should not be used for recreation.
