Playmobil Fire Ice Rescue
« on: January 21, 2019, 20:01:55 »
Hello everyone,

Just wanted to share some pictures with you from a cold Ohio morning.

At 0920 hours Playmobil communications recieved an emergency call for a dog possibly trapped in a pond at a local park.

Responding units - Engine and Medic 5, Rescue 3, District 1 (command) and Support 6.


Due to the snow, units had to stage on the main roads and hike to the pond. Engine 5's crew arrived at the pond and found a dog that had fallen through the ice.

Unable to rescue the dog from the shore, 2 members of Rescue 3 got into their ice rescue suits and went out on the ice.

The dog was pulled from the pond and was taken to a local vet for further treatment.

Thanks for taking the time to view these pictures. I would have more but it was a warm 5 degrees out.

That looks great and so realistic! A great use of the ice!

A great use of the weather you got, Fire Chief, well told and well photographed.

Very nice story and pics.
Pic 1: snow on the truck roof- did you leave it outside when it was snowing or add the snow manually?
Pics 3,4,5: the shadow moves across the scene quite a long way- how long were you out there freezing your     hands off for the sake of Art?

Thanks everyone!

I used a broom to drop the snow on the trucks for the picture.

The shading was a coincidence, I couldn't get myself out of the shot. It looks great though...

A thrilling incident! We must know if the dog made it.  :skull:
