Firefighters train for ice rescues
Peterborough firefighters took advantage of Thursday’s balmy weather to conduct an ice rescue training session on the Otonabee River near Crawford Dr. in Peterborough. The fire department’s four platoons train once every winter season. Crews will be sharpening their skills there again for the next two to three weeks.
