Water Rescue Drill for 07/30/18
 
By Vista Fire Department
July 31, 2018
 

This week's Monday drill was led by Firefighter Lynda Scott as we reviewed how to respond during a water rescue emergency.

Firefighter Scott, who is also a lifeguard, showed our First Responders several rescue techniques such as how to remove a patient from the water, how to maintain head stabilization when a patient is floating and the utilization of a backboard during a water rescue call.

The Vista Fire Department holds Drill every Monday night following the first Monday of the month. If you would like to join our team please visit the "Become a Member" tab at VistaFD.org for more details.
