HFD Practices Ice Rescues
While many Hollistonians were reading the Sunday paper and sitting in a warm home, Holliston’s firefighters were practicing their ice rescue techniques at a mostly frozen Lake Winthrop.
Deputy Chief Mark Dellicker led by example, putting on a dry suit to complete a successful rescue. When asked if the suit was really dry, he said, “it is as long as you don’t put your face in the water.”
The ice was not thick enough for skating – but just right for training. Thank you Holliston firefighters for continuing to hone your skills – just in case they’re needed.

Publishers’ note: Although not part of the planned training, the toy truck on the ice captured in some of Yvette’s photos was safely returned to shore.
