GRANGER — The Granger Fire Department took part in a training exercise for ice water rescues during the evening of Feb. 14.

The ice rescue training, led by Fire Chief Jim Paulett, was part of required training for the department, according to department officials.

The firefighters were split into two groups and took part in mock rescues at a local pond. Granger trustees Richard Pace and John Ginley were among the “victims” being rescued.
