Firefighters TJ Strack (left, in boat), with Saranac Volunteer Fire Department, and Kim Gordon, a member of the Morrisonville Fire Department, conduct a simulated swift-water boat rescue with the use of a highline-rope system operated by personnel on both sides of the river with a series of ropes and pulleys to guide the boat upstream during a training day recently. The event was hosted by the Adirondack Regional Technical Rescue Task Force on the Saranac River near the intersection of Route 3 and Ore Bed Road in Saranac.
