The 33 miles in which is the Orland Fire Protection District has over 200 bodies of water with a depth of more than six feet. The potential for a water related incident is a very real possibility. If someone were to fall through the ice, or get caught in a swift water creek due to flooding, the Dive Squad has all the training and equipment available to affectively rescue those in distress. This team actually deploys about six times a year. In case of a more complicated rescue call, The Orland Fire Protection District’s Dive Squad is a part of MABAS 19 and receives more skilled equipment and technicians to help safely handle these special situations.
