As the weather keeps getting nicer and restrictions are slowly being lifted, people are getting out there and playing, so we must be prepared. This is the first year that CBFPD has swift water rescue capabilities. We recognize these types of incidents need immediate help. We now have our Oceanid rescue boat. As most boaters know - when it comes to rescue (reach, throw, row then go). We will continue to work closely with SAR.
