The Luverne Fire Department acquired a 14-foot inflatable watercraft for $10,000 about six months ago, and Fire Chief Dave Van Batavia said the water rescue practice at The Lake on July 7 was time well-spent. “We just wanted to see what it would be like to pull someone over the side of the boat, and what we would do with a backboard to help load a patient into the boat,” Van Batavia said. “That’s why we went out a few different times.”

Local Emergency crews practice water rescue scenarios

The Lake in Luverne served as training grounds for local emergency responders to practice deep-water rescues Tuesday, July 7.

“Kayaking is popular on the river, and there are a lot of people using The Lake in Luverne,” said local paramedic Jill Johnson.

“So, having first responders get experience in the water before an emergency is important.”
