OnFocus – On February 20, members of the Richfield Rural Fire Department, Cameron Volunteer Fire Department and the Hewitt Area Fire Department held a training for ice water rescues.

Bob and Roxanne Tomkowiak provided their pond as the training site as members of the departments were used as people who needed saving.

Members being trained then were taught by Angie Yerke and Jerry Minor how to properly calm the person in the water and help them escape.
