01/23/10 105 W, 2 I - + 17 - 9 Task Force on Falls Lake

That's Task Force 8 on the water at Falls Lake, where they've been conducting water rescue training for the last few days. The NC USAR team is comprised of members of Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and Chapel Hill fire departments. Each has an identical 2007 Ford F-550 Super Duty swift water rescue truck and boat trailer. Raleigh houses theirs at Station 25 and the unit is numbered USAR 801. The team's logistic unit, a 2008 Chevy/Isuzu box truck, was also present, and was used to transport Base of Operations equipment. Learn more about Task Force 8. Photos from Legeros coming later.
