MFD Behind The Scenes: Lake Rescue Team Ice Dive Training
The Madison Fire Department Lake Rescue Team is trained and equipped to perform water rescues, but did you know we do ice rescues, too?
To keep our skills fresh, we take to the lakes year-round for routine training.
On a frigid January afternoon, the team headed out to Lake Monona for ice dives. Firefighter/Paramedic Matt Murray brought a camera with him so you can get a glimpse of what it's like to go beneath the surface– without having to brave the freezing temps!
