Water Rescue & Recovery Team

The Water Rescue & Recovery Team is responsible for all incidents involving bodies of water and includes three disciplines: dive, sonar and swiftwater.  The Dive Team is tasked with the rescue and/or recovery of drowning victims and often assists police agencies with evidence recovery as well.  Members of the Sonar Team utilize specialized equipment to search for and locate victims and/or evidence.  The Swiftwater Team responds to incidents that involve any type of swift moving water.
