Drill Night: Ramapo River Diving

Posted on April 11, 2019

Our drill this week divers and tenders practiced their skills in the Ramapo River. Diving is a dangerous and skilled task that Company 1 members must be proficient as, as we are part of the Bergen County and also the North Jersey scuba task forces and can be called a moment’s notice to recover a victim or evidence located in our area’s waterways.
