On Monday Minoa Fire Department members took full advantage of a drill night to practice there skills in ice water rescue. The drill was taught by two of our members who are certified instructors Lt. B. Schermerhorn and FF D. Matthes Jr. Minoa is very fortunate to have a special operations trailer which is always ready to go for any ice water or water rescue calls that we might have in our district or neighboring districts. Minoa has 2 members who are certified ice water instructors, 9 members who are ice water techs and 15 member with awareness to assist the technicians on scene. This time of the year many members take full advantage of the opportunity to train with this equipment.
