UNITS RESPOND TO REPORTED OVERTURNED BOATER
Around 1615 hours, 12/29, a citizen who had been fishing in Lone Star Lakes stopped by the fire station and alerted our volunteers that he had recovered an overturned canoe that still had tackle in it, as well as an active fishing license.
Car 109 and Battalion 2 were made aware, and they, along with Engine 29 and Medic 9A responded to the area. Upon their arrival, units found the described canoe.
Units from Suffolk Fire-Rescue were dispatched to assist, including Car 4, Battalion 1, Rescue 1, Boat 5, and Zodiac 5 and 1.
With Car 109 as Lone Star Command, 29 conducted a search around the perimeter of the lake. Brush 9 responded to the scene and was tasked with attempting to locate any vehicles unaccounted for. Concurrently, the fire boats were launched to search the water.
Car 109 passed the command to Battalion 2, and personnel performed a shoreline search in the area that the canoe was found, with nothing found.
Shortly after the search began, contact was made with the missing individual via telephone, and it was confirmed that the canoe had been abandoned a week prior and all persons were accounted for.
Engine 9 remained in service through the duration of the event. ... See MoreSee Less
