The daily life of an emergency responder can be pretty boring but when the call comes in they need to be at their best.
The old saying “practice makes perfect” could not be more true to these people.
Yesterday here in Terre Haute, a group of those emergency first responders were out training for an underwater rescue in 21 degrees temperatures with wind chills in the single digits.
In some cases divers were under the ice for the first time.
It’s an experience that needs to be second nature when the call comes in.
