RENTON WATER RESCUE E 12-A 12-D 12 RENTON WATER RESCUE TEAM FIRE ENGINE 12-AID 12-DIVE 12 on Mens Short Sleeve T-Shirt

Description:

See our sizing chart.


The City of Renton has over three miles of Lake Washington shoreline that includes a busy waterfront park, an active airport, and several miles of the Cedar River that are adjacent to heavily traveled roads, which makes it a geographic area that requires serious preparation to manage water rescue incidents.

The Renton Fire and Emergency Services Department Dive Team was formed in the spring of 1986 and is responsible for water rescue of various types in the City of Renton.  The team also provides services within neighboring jurisdictions of King County.  The team is made up of 20 members, led by Captain Greg Hartman.

Working with Other Agencies

Not every jurisdiction can afford to support a technical rescue team such as a dive or water rescue unit.  For this reason, trading of services between agencies has become more prevalent.  In 1997, Renton forged an agreement with the City of Bellevue, wherein Renton would provide Underwater Rescue service to Bellevue and Bellevue would provide Confined Space Rescue to Renton.  This is a logical, cost saving measure.  New efforts are also underway to coordinate all technical forms a rescue in South King County.  An agreement now exists where Renton provides water rescue services to other jurisdictions within King County in exchange for response assistance for Trench Rescue, Confined Space Rescue, High Angle Rope Rescue, and Hazardous Materials Response.

Equipment

A new water rescue apparatus (truck) was purchased and constructed in 1999.  With $50,000 and approximately 500 man-hours (some of which were donated by team members) a new Ford F-550, 4-wheel drive chassis was fitted with a compartment box from a 1987 aid car.

Also in 1999, an Achilles, 16-foot inflatable boat was purchased.  Powered by a Yamaha 60hp outboard.  It is a versatile tool that allows the team to address water rescue incidents no matter what their distance from shore.  The boat can be quickly converted (with some small equipment transfers) to a platform for scuba diving when underwater rescue at an offshore location is required.

The Dive Team also utilizes a 12-foot river raft for working in moving bodies of water both in surface and sub-surface operations.

Divers use the AGA full-face regulator with communications system.  They are able to talk with other divers and surface support personnel while under the water.
