Morinville Fire Department members were out on the ice at the Morinville Fish and Game Association Pond on Saturday, Feb. 3, for morning and afternoon ice rescue training. Firefighters put on Mustang Suits, a waterproof ice rescue suit. The day’s training taught crews how to get into the suits as well as different types of ice rescue techniques based on the victim’s capabilities of extricating themselves out of the water. The annual training opportunity was two months earlier than last year. – Stephen Dafoe Photo
