On Tuesday January 16th the Union Hill Volunteer Fire Department was invited to participate in Ice / Cold Water Rescue training with the Ontario Fire Company. The two departments convened at Ontario’s fire hall to review tactics, safety, and use of proper equipment when dealing with these types of emergencies. Shortly after the two departments traveled to Casey Park to practice self-rescue and one person rescuer techniques. The two departments will continues to train on this topic later this week.
Union Hill Volunteer Fire Department and Ontario Fire Company continue to work side by side training together to build the best possible response for the Town of Ontario and it’s residents. We may have different colored trucks, but we have the same mission to keep the community safe.
