Water safety rescue training
One of the interesting things about living in this area is the amount of activity created by the Mississippi River. There is commercial use, recreational use, and wildlife use, and those often involve many agencies along the river. I had the chance to go to Lock and Dam 4 near Alma, Wisconsin, to attend a water safety rescue training session with members of area fire departments, natural resources agencies, and others. The highlight was practicing rescues from boats right at the edge of the dam gates.
