Firefighters training with boats on the Cedar River .
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph and write about local firefighters while they practiced piloting different search and rescue boats.

The exercises were the annual spring refresher courses ahead of the annual boating season and flooding.

The weather was cold and foggy with occasional showers. Even so, it was better to sit on a cold aluminum boat in the rain than to be at the office.
