Swift Water Training—2013 Firefighters from Hartford, Colchester, Brattleboro, and Rutland spent a week preparing for another swift water incident. A training session coordinated by the Vermont Fire Academy in collaboration with Capital Technical Rescue. There are 13 departments across Vermont skilled in swift water rescue, with Colchester and Hartford being the biggest. Every year- these men and women get a refresher. They will leave the 36hour course with re-certification, and security, knowing they are well-suited for the task.
