Update from our friends at HRFD:

Aug 2nd Water Rescue – Harlem-Roscoe Fire Chief Don Shoevlin reports,
“Yesterday afternoon at approximately 4:20 pm, the Harlem Roscoe Fire Department was dispatched to a quarry off Prairie Hill Rd. for an injured person. Upon arrival they found a person who was swimming and had injured themselves. Fire personnel made their way out to the victim by walking on the conveyor belt walkway to initiate care until we could reach the patient with a rapid deployment watercraft. The patient was placed in a stokes basket, then placed on the watercraft to bring him to shore where further treatment could be given. The patient was transported to the hospital. Quick action and thinking by fire department personnel made this unordinary rescue seem like we deal with it on a daily basis. Another true testament to “we are who we are because of them”. Excellent job done by all. I would also like to thank Rockton Fire Department for their assistance.”
