On August 13, Columbia Fire & Rescue responded to a call to rescue two young sisters stranded on the banks of the Duck River.

CFR deployed Marine 1 to retrieve and return the young ladies and their inflatable raft safely to the boat ramp across the river.

This was a multi-agency operation with assistance from Maury County Fire Department, Maury Regional Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and the Maury County Sheriff’s Department.

Columbia Fire & Rescue reminds people to practice water safety. Always check the weather, wear a life jacket, and do not attempt to cross a body of water or swim in rapid currents.
