Rescue Training Coming Up for Pella First Responders

The Pella Fire Department and Pella Ambulance will take part in some rescue training over the next coming weeks. This weekend they will hold a trench rescue training. Trench rescues involve bracing the sides of a ditch that has collapsed on someone during construction. They will participate in an Ice rescue training in early February as well. Ice rescue training involves putting on a suit that not only protects the wearer from the freezing water, but also helps them to float.
