Deer River Fire Department hits the early ice for their annual ice/water rescue training

Each year the Deer River Fire Department hits the early ice for their annual ice/water rescue training. They brought in a specialist this year, Dan Bernardi with RescuePax, to help teach new skills and show them new tools they could use. It was a challenge to find ice on the lakes close to Deer River. Chase Lake did not have any ice on Dec. 15. Little Deer Lake had 5 inches, so they could practice their rescue techniques there. The Deer River Fire Department would like to remind everyone to use caution and follow the guidelines set by the Minnesota DNR while enjoying the area lakes. Every lake is unique and ice thickness will vary on all of them. Be smart and be safe. Photo Courtesy of the Deer River Fire Department
