WATER RESCUE – BOX 1009 – BALDWIN ST/LEE HWY

On May 16 @ 0535hrs, Fire and rescue crews from New Baltimore Volunteer Fire Company and Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company were dispatched for a water rescue on Baldwin Street.  Crews successfully rescued a driver of the vehicle stuck in the rapidly moving water.  This is a frequent location for water rescues, please avoid this area during periods of heavy rain. Crews successfully rescued two people from the same location last year earning some crew members on-scene an award for valor. We remind everybody to not drive through water in the roadways as many water rescues can be avoided, turn around, don’t drown.
