Members of the Southborough Fire Department practiced their ice rescue skills this week while a crew from WBZ-TV looked on. Firefighters simulated a rescue with one firefighter in the water and another coming to his aid. You can view an excellent series of photos on the fire department website.
WBZ-TV reporter Peg Rusconi interviewed Fire Chief John Mauro Jr. for a piece on ice safety. Chief Mauro’s primary piece of advice? If you’re in doubt, stay off the ice.
