The London Fire DepartmentÕs marine rescue unit was conducting water and ice rescue training on the Thames River at Riverside Drive and Wharncliffe Road yesterday. Shown here, Brendan Smith, left, and Scott McKenzie from Rescue 6 use a Rapid Deployment Craft to simulate a rescue of Capt. Phil Oliva, who is the trainer and team leader. The craft can be quickly inflated with air cylinders and is used in swift and ice water rescues.
