Kennewick Firefighters Practice Ice Rescues

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- The Kennewick Fire Department hit the Columbia River Thursday for hands on ice rescue training.

They simulated a rescue, and practiced ways to monitor the thickness of ice they are working on.

Rescuers say they never want to have to go out on the ice, but they are forced to sometimes.

So far, no one has been rescued in the area this winter.
