YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Volunteers with the Yorktown Heights Fire Department took to the water this week for special training operations.

Members of the Water Rescue Unit were hard at work Wednesday afternoon, conducting training for both boat operations and high lines, learning how to properly load the pulley and utilize track lines.

Officials stated that high line training for both boat control and water curtain deployment was reviewed. Divers from the Fire Department also took a dip in the water to familiarize themselves with new DUI SCUBA Dry suits that will soon be utilized by firefighters in the event of an emergency.
