Buffalo Grove Rescue Divers Practice in Pond

Dive team members from the Buffalo Grove Fire Department held a training last week in a local pond.

Did you notice a dive team at Green Lake Park last week? There was no emergency situation; instead, dive team members from the Buffalo Grove Fire Department as well as the Long Grove Fire Protection District and the Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Fire Protection District, along with other members of their departments acting as shore-line crews, conducted their annual training Nov. 28 in the pond.

The area departments trained together because it is difficult for any one department to have the resources necessary when divers are needed. It was also a chance for new firefighters to be instructed on how to assist the divers as shore personnel.
