New River Rescue Team

Posted by wlpo on June 8, 2010

Peru and Ottawa have one, and now so does Oglesby.

With plenty of people using the Vermilion River, Oglesby has established its own river rescue squad.  The squad has 19 trained members, many who are either firefighters or ambulance workers.

Public Safety Commissioner Tom Porter says the rescue team isn’t an attempt to try and get Buzzi Unicem’s stretch of the Vermilion back open.
