Sharing for other agency:
The Chackbay Fire Department will be hosting a Surface Water Rescue training on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Firefighters and Law Enforcement personnel from various agencies will be performing live training exercises in local waterways including Bayou Lafourche (from the Leighton Boat Launch) and Grand Bayou (from the Bill Taylor Boat Launch).
Crews will have one launch bay at Bill Taylor blocked for a few hours on Saturday (the other two launch bays will remain open).
We are notifying the public that there will be ‘victims’ in the waterways along with rescue personnel.
The public is asked to please use caution when approaching these training scenario locations.
