On Mother's Day, I was able to be a part of the unofficial Dive Rescue Team which was able to save 10 tiny ducklings from a sewer drain.
One of our other squads saw a mother duck acting very strangely near a sewer grate, and so they stopped to take a look. The found 10 of her little ones had fallen through a sewer grate.
We were called in as back up because...um....because that's where Dispatch told us to go. We were bringing some backup supplies. One of the EMTs from the first squad on scene was nominated to get into the sewer to get the ducks. He said the smell didn't bother him because it reminded him of the air at Really Terrible Nursing Home.
So here are two pictures of the GWN Dive Rescue Team in action. I'm not in either of these pictures. And Mom was soon reunited with her ducklings.
