The Wantagh Fire Department Dive Team recently joined with the Freeport Fire Department at the Jones Beach Coast Guard Station for a training session. This gave members an opportunity to practice realistic underwater search, rescue and removal techniques in a somewhat sheltered environment. Wantagh, Freeport and East Rockaway are part of the newly created South Nassau Dive Task Force which was created to increase collaboration and training opportunities among dive teams that work together on the South Shore of Nassau County.
