Carmel firefighters train for water rescues

CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) – Carmel firefighters were called to a water rescue for a car in a pond Monday night, just a few days after they wrapped up their annual water rescue training. 

Every firefighter went through the training that was held at the Hamilton County Training Center. 

They worked on dropping a life jacket to someone in the water using a drone and flipping over an overturned boat. 

They also worked on a scenario where a fisherman called in about two people in the water. The responding firefighters did not have a boat so they used the fisherman’s and had to decide how to proceed with the rescue with limited space available on the boat. 

News 8 tagged along with the firefighters who were training. Watch the scenario play out in the video.
