Littleton Fire Rescue crews will conduct Swiftwater Rescue Training tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. on the South Platte River at 2300 West Union Avenue in Sheridan. Dive Team members will play the role of victims in simulated rescues.
All Littleton firefighters receive training in Swiftwater Rescue Operations where they are taught proper tactics to deploy a crew, how to reach remote spots on the river, self-preservation techniques and more.
Parking is available at Centennial Park, 2630 Decatur Street for those who’d like to watch. To reach the river, access the Mary Carter Greenway Trail from the baseball fields.
