Ice/Water Rescue Training
By Lieutenant Cameron Frost
February 12, 2023

On February 12, 2023, Potsdam Fire participated in an ice/water rescue training hosted by Parishville Fire Department. At training, members were briefed on the safety protocols and concerns associated with ice/water rescue operations. Members were joined by multiple fire/rescue departments, NYS Forest Rangers, and the NYSP Dive Team.

As members were returning to service, Potsdam Fire, Rescue, and Car 10 were dispatched to a possible ice rescue behind Stewarts on Maple Street.

The Potsdam Fire Department would like to remind the community that no ice is safe ice, and with the temperatures beginning to warm up, we remind everyone to stay off the ice.
