Lexington Fire Department practices ice rescues

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington Fire Department took advantage of the weather Monday by practicing ice rescues in Jacobson Park.  We asked a rescue team member about how thick ice needs to be in order to be ‘safe.’

"No ice is really safe where we live because we don’t get cold for long enough that you should really ever be out on the ice," said Captain Justin Halsaver of the Lexington Fire Department.

The weather conditions allowed the crew to practice cold water and ice rescues in their special cold weather equipment and gear.
