Today is a continuation of yesterday's post. Of course after yesterday's post I am at a loss of what to say today. At present the Harrisburg Fire Bureau operates a boat of of city island, the raft pictured above out of station 1 and in the near future a new boat equipped with a pump, our first real fire boat. Three of the companies in the city Tower 2, Squad 8 and Tower 3 are the dedicated water rescue rigs. Of course I prefer entering the river in July or August but I don't have the luxury of choosing when the calls are.
In the top photo Brian Bastinelli, Tower 2 and Lt. Dennis Devoe, Tower 3, B Platoon return to shore in the raft after rescuing Lt. Doug Bair. Once again Doug proves that he does not have both ores in the water. In the bottom photo Brian uses the ice awls to move across the ice in the sled.
