Getting their feet wet

  • Hanover firefighter and paramedic Blair Weathers, right, helps firefighter and AEMT Jon Wilkinson, middle, unzip his dry suit as Lt. Robert Diehm, left, pulls their raft off the ice following an ice rescue practice on a setback of the Connecticut River at Wilson’s Landing in Hanover, N.H., on Friday, Jan. 27, 2023. The fire department needs to practice using the specialized equipment at minimum once each winter with scenarios that simulate the rescue of an incapacitated victim, and one that is able to assist as they are pulled out of the water.
