Jones County Dive Team Training
The Jones County Dive Team conducted rescue and recovery scuba diving training on Wednesday at Springer Lake on Jordan Drive from 1:00pm (1300 hours) to 5:00pm (1700 hours). The JCSD dive team members were joined by personnel from other agencies and the Jones County Emergency Management Agency for this important skills training.
We thank Mr. Darrell Springer, owner of Springer's Auto Salvage, for the use of his lake and property for this critically important training. Our scuba divers train in order to be prepared for surface and underwater rescue missions and also, sadly, for surface and underwater recovery missions. In addition, there are times when evidence searches are conducted which require scuba divers to search underwater for items. We train in order to be ready for critical missions which can happen at any time.
