Ice Rescue

During the cold winter months here at Lake Tahoe, ponds, small lakes, and streams can become very dangerous when iced over.  Lake Valley has risen to the challenge by purchasing equipment and providing training to employees for ice rescue.

Currently, the entire department has been trained in the basic operations of ice rescue so that in the event of an emergency, personnel and equipment can be quickly deployed to perform a rescue.  Both engines carry ice rescue suits and retrieval ropes.
