Lakewood Fire Department Ice Rescue Practice

Lakewood has always had a really good fire department . Their exploits are legendary. Today we look at one of the many reasons why. They never stop training. It was 17 degrees, and today was the day they jumped into the river through 3 inches of ice to practice rescuing you or someone else. Thank you Lakewood Fire Deaprtment.

  • The reason they train. Lakewood has about 3 miles of water front counting the lake and river. They also help with other cities when needed.
    People stay off the ice.
