Water Rescue (Phase 1)
Congratulation goes to FF Justin Lenker for successfully completing Water Rescue (Phase 1). This class was taught by Capt. Kenny Whitebread Jr. and Harry Cleland Jr. and hosted by the Middletown Fire Department (88). It was a three-day (16 Hour) class that went though bookwork, pool work and also being able to go to the Susquehanna River to “Ride the Spill Way” at the Dock Street Dam. They learned rescue techniques, throw bags, and rescuing people that are entrapped along with many other skills.
The class had 9 participants and was a great enjoyable experience.
