Dallas Bay Water Operations Division Expands Swiftwater Rescue Team

FF Jared Cox & LT Zach Coppinger

Dallas Bay Fire & Rescue Water Operations Division has expanded its Swiftwater Rescue Team with the addition of two newly certified swimmers.

Training Lieutenant Zach Coppinger and Firefighter Jared Cox completed their Swiftwater 1 certification this weekend, completing the coursework and practical testing put on by the Tennessee Association of Rescue Squads. They were trained in techniques for rescuing victims in rapidly flowing water, along with self-rescue techniques. Their work this weekend proves again the lengths our volunteers go to put others first.
