This past weekend, Captain Harry Tompkins went to a demonstration given by the Mahopac Falls Fire Department’s Dive Team. Two of our Department’s Deputies, McDonough & Neary, are a part of this team.
Captain Tompkins was very interested to learn about what the Dive Team does and how they operate. They are a very well trained unit that takes great pride in offering their services to the Mahopac Falls Fire District as well as the rest of Putnam County.
Take notice of the photos showing their rope system which is a communications system between the Dive member and his land partner during search and recovery missions. The interesting part is that embedded into the rope is a communication system for both parties so they are able to be in constant real-time contact.
Our dive team members do an outstanding job representing the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and they received lots of good feedback from the ranking members of the Fire Department. We could not be more proud!
