Incident: Dive Rescue/Recovery
Time: 19:51 hrs
Location: Mahwah N.J.
On the above date and time the Piermont Fire Department Dive Team was requested mutual aid to Mahwah N.J. for a confirmed drowning.
Our department dive team responded with a total of 10 divers, 13-Marine 2, 13-EM and 7 other support members of the team. 8 divers from Piermont conducted multiple dives using the Halfmoon Pattern before switching to our Grapnel System to allow the divers to cover more area in a shorter period of time.
After diving for close to 4 hour, members were unable to locate the missing male. All dive operations were canceled at 23:00 hrs by Mahwah command without any further incident.
In the early morning hours the Mahwah Fire Department and other N.J. agencies ￼will make the decision to continue recovery operations or to cease operations all together. ￼￼
We would like to thank all of our members who assisted this evening. Also a big thank you to the Mahwah Fire Department Dive Team for allowing use to assist them during the recovery efforts.
Please pray for the family of the missing, God Bless.

Today, 6 members completed the train the trainer course for our sterling F4 bailout system. These members gave up 10 hours on a Sunday and bailed out 9 times each to help us become more self sufficient with in house training. Good work all! Thanks to Capital Technical Rescue for coming down to teach this course. ... See MoreSee Less
Awesome, wish I would have known.
Good job brothers! I got to watch a few minutes of the training today, and I can tell you it was a lot of work to get through it all, and you should be proud to be able to now help keep our other members properly trained to use the bailout system, which could save a firefighter's life.
Thanks to the best FD around!
