Drill Night: Dive Drill

For this week’s (08-16-2023) drill Co 1 firefighters worked on their diving and tending skills.

Co 1 maintains one of the few dive teams in the area (there are only 4 in Bergen County). So keeping our skills sharp is important for not only Mahwah residents, but any surrounding jurisdiction without access to a qualified dive team.

Along with that, our divers possess a very wide range of qualified skills from underwater evidence recovery, to vehicle recovery, making our team one of the most qualified in the area.

Night Dive Drill

For our Wednesday night (3/22/23) drill, we took to the Ramapo river for some practice night diving in current. Not only did our divers get more time in the water (which they are always happy about) but they worked on perfecting a new search technique that will allow the divers to methodically search a body of water, even with a decent current.
