German Technical Relief Team Helps With Flood Training

The County of Renfrew is getting themselves into a better position to deal with possible spring flooding.

On Monday members of the German Civil Defence Group were in Renfrew County providing training on flooding relief. 

Mike Nolan the Director of Emergency Service and Paramedic Services for the County, says the German team was invited because they are leaders in flood mitigation and set the standards of emergency response, making them the best to learn from. 

Several municipalities, emergency responders and County departments attended the training.  They focused on provider safety, mobilizing volunteers and the most effective ways to battle rising flood waters.
