The Evansville SWAT Team dive into training with some help from the Evansville Fire Department. Earlier this morning, EFD Dive Rescue trainers jumped into the Lloyd Pool to assist swat member in a hands-on training exercise.
SWAT members were in full gear as they learned how to keep themselves safe while rescuing others. Fire Captain Dan Brown says it's important for rescuers in this community.
"We have a lot of water here," said Captain Brown. "First on the scene isn't necessarily going to be a firefighter in a dive suit."
About 25 SWAT members took part in the training.
