DeKalb County Fire Rescue to conduct dive training at Murphey Candler Lake
Brookhaven, GA, June 19, 2017 – This upcoming Wednesday, June 21, Brookhaven’s Murphey Candler Lake will host DeKalb County’s Fire Rescue monthly training exercises for its search and rescue divers.
This training is conducted on a monthly basis in order to maintain the County’s emergency response preparedness and hone the skills essential to performing search and rescue operations in an aquatic environment.
“Emergency preparedness is a diverse endeavor that requires cooperation between all elements of our community. DeKalb County’s continued dedication to maintain operational readiness and competency enhance preparedness and the ability to respond to any emergency if they occur,” said Brookhaven’s Emergency Management Coordinator Paul White.
Training will take place along the southern end of the lake with operations occurring along West Nancy Creek Drive between the hours of 8am and 12pm. As a result, the westbound lane and sidewalk on Nancy Creek Drive will be closed from 8 a.m. to noon to accommodate equipment and crew staging.
