Serch and Rescue near Glenwood?

I was driving back from some boating in Utah this afternoon and saw about 30 different emergency vehicles near the Colorado. The first ones I saw were in Debque Canyon and I stopped seeing them just befor the south canyon wave.

Anyone know what happened?

If it is the one around New Castle last night, we had another flip in Dinasaur and a passerby called in a boat with 3 people in it and 5 swimmers around the MM 107, We did our search and found the boat around the 106 with everyone accounted for. people are just calling and not stopping to see if everyone is Ok, It is a daily event in that area now and our Fire crews are well trained and ready for the job, hopefully they are all rescues this year.

As a firefighter in Summit......people who call in but don't stop to render help or atleast get some information drive me crazy. It waste fire dept. resources and time along with burdening the tax payers.
So as a reminder to everyone, if you see an incident that you think might need emergency services, stop and get some information to give to the dispatchers so that we can determine the best way to respond to the emergency and what apparatus to bring.
830....keep up the good job!
