COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)-For the next three days members of the Columbus Fire And Rescue Dive Team will be honing their skills.
They are temporarily stationed at The Stark Recreation Center on the campus of MUW, preparing in the event of an actual emergency. Submerged in a pool on campus 19 certified black water divers who often work in waters with zero visibilities, are making sure they stay familiar with their gear.
Working alongside and communicating with their tenders, divers are in touch and prepared for any malfunction. The specialty team responds to emergencies involving search for and recovery of drowning victims and other water emergencies.
