Fire Rescue Training on Ohio River

The Daviess County Fire Department is testing sonar equipment on the Ohio River, as part of a training exercise.

Every year, firefighters respond to dozens of calls from stranded boaters. They also assist with rescue and recovery operations, such as retrieving a submerged vehicle.

The Owensboro Fire Department has a similar rescue boat, and both agencies receive support from the dive team with the Henderson Fire Department.

Jonathan Heath and Andrew Wilson provide an update from the English Park boat ramp.
