The Missoula City Fire Department will be holding river rescue training on the Clark Fork this Friday afternoon from 2 to 4, using new state-of-the-art equipment. Fire Chief Jason Diehl wants the public to know that the new equipment is very much like the personal watercraft now prohibited on public rivers by Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks. The Fire Department has a special use permit for this type of craft when it is being used for rescue purposes.

With the removal of the Milltown Dam, and the increased public use of western Montana’s rivers, the Fire Department is using the event Friday to help train their personnel in the use of the new equipment.
