Baltimore County Water Rescue
By Firefighter Dylan Baker
July 19, 2017

On July 17th a strong storm cell hovered over Reisterstown in Baltimore County dumping several inches of rain within minutes. Our Dive Team was alerted to help Baltimore County Fire Department at the Cherryvale Plaza and Cherry Valley Shopping Center located in the 11700 block of Reisterstown Rd. with a man stuck in his vehicle with swift moving water. While responding to the scene, our swift water technicians suited up. Once on scene, our techs entered the water and safely removed one patient from his vehicle.

We would like to remind our citizens, you should never drive through standing water in the road.

Units: Dive Unit 13, Boat 13-1, Utility 13
