Whitecliff Water Rescue

From the Facebook post of Mayor Grant Mabie...



Fantastic work by Crestwood's Fire Department and Police Department today during flash flooding to rescue a stranded individual, and to quickly ensure that no one else was in danger. Crestwood is blessed to have some of the finest first responders in the region.
Earlier this year, the Crestwood Fire Department underwent extensive training in water rescue, primarily in case there was an issue in the Whitecliff Park Quarry lake, but also in case the Crestwood Fire Department had to assist jurisdictions closer to the Meramec River on a mutual aid call. This was probably not an area where we would ever expect to have to conduct a water rescue, but everyone was prepared and performed admirably during rapidly changing conditions.
