Training

PVRS held a joint training with lifeguards at Postwood Park in Hannawa Falls. The training simulated a water search and rescue. Both teams were able to practice their respective rescue skills. More importantly the joint training allowed the two teams to practice working with each other increasing joint effectiveness.

Potsdam Rescue was recently part of a multi-agency training. The training focused on an MCI which included surrounding mutual aide from Potsdam Fire, Canton Rescue, Norfolk Rescue, West Potsdam Fire, Parishville Rescue, Colton Rescue, Madrid Rescue and Potsdam Police. The scenario was a two car motor vehicle accident with 8 patients and one pedestrian trapped under a vehicle.
