Roanoke County Fire & Rescue (VA) Launches Swift Water Rescue Team

Roanoke County Fire & Rescue spent $150,000 on four boats, gear and training for the team, reports WSLS.com.

After Hurricane Michael in 2018, the department realized the need for a swift water rescue team. That need was only amplified after that past year of heavy rain and flash flooding.

The county works closely with Roanoke City’s and Salem’s swift water rescue teams because they’re all part of a statewide Technical Rescue Team.
