Washington Island Fire tows in another distress boat

The Washington Island Fire Department is reminding you to be careful while boating after towing in its second vessel in approximately a week.

 

Emergency personnel received the call just after 10 a.m. Friday morning when a docent from Rock Island State Park notified dispatch about a boat in distress just off their shores. Less than 30 minutes later, the Washington Island Fire Department was able to locate the vessel and its three passengers and tow it into safe dockage. The United States Coast Guard was also notified, but their mutual aid was called off shortly after the Washington Island Fire Department made contact with the boat.

 

No other details were given concerning the incident. This is the seventh water rescue call the department has responded to in the last two weeks.
