The truck company was set up at the rivers edge and by extending the bucket on the ladder out to the vehicle; the occupant was able to step into the bucket where she was brought to safety. The occupant’s dog was also on the vehicle when crews arrived but jumped off on his own and made it safely to shore.
Two engines, one truck company, one battalion chief, and one support unit responded to this incident.
We want to remind everyone to obey the warning signs at these crossings and DO NOT attempt to cross if flooded! Turn around, don’t drown!
