These Divers and Water Rescue Specialists come from all walks of life, active duty military, civilian professionals and the public safety environment. All members come with the desire to serve and be part of the action. However, each member of the Team is also a Volunteer within the the EMS service. To be a member of the team requires a great deal of time for training, physical demands (and physical tests) especially in the first to become a released member. Once a month classes are provided both classroom and practical to keep up current techniques and recertification requirements.
