Worcester Firefighters Practice Skills


On Dec. 11, members of the Worcester Fire Department Dive Rescue Team were at the Hart Center pool practicing the skills they might use in real-life scenarios, including evidence recovery, escaping from entanglement, and providing oxygen to a victim trapped underwater. The 16 divers in the fire department work in teams of four, and must perform a minimum of six open water dives and one pool dive each year as training.


A diver in the diving well follows a guide line, used when searching for victims or evidence in open water to maintain a consistent search path.
