PCSO Dive Team Members Participate in Training, Clean-up of Local Spring
The Polk County Sheriff's Office USART (Dive
Team) members recently participated in a Disney-sponsored training
exercise that also served to help clean a local spring. The underwater
search and rescue training event allowed several public safety dive
teams the opportunity to train together while also cleaning the
underwater portions of Wekiva Springs in Orange County.
The exercise not only served a crucial training need, but also helped
the environment with the clean-up of an important natural resource.
The event also helped to promote a team/partnership among the
participating agencies, with the goal of sharing experiences and ideas
among the participating members to enhance each team's capabilities to
further serve their community.
In addition to the PCSO USART Team, participating agencies included the
Orange County SO, Seminole SO, Orlando PD, Lakeland PD, and others.
