Dog Rescue at Loch Raven
At 2:37 PM, the Providence Volunteer Fire Company, Baltimore County Fire Department USAR 17, and Baltimore Environmental Police were dispatched for an animal rescue at the Loch Raven Dam. Upon arrival, Truck 297 found a golden retriever named Jackson who found his way into the tunnel system by the little dam. PVFC Firefighter/EMT Wry used a water rescue rope to lasso the canine and guide him to the shoreline where he was reunited with his family.
Ironically, this may be FF/EMT Wry’s last call with the PVFC for a while, as he will be headed to US Army basic training next week.
Loch Raven Drive was temporarily blocked by Baltimore County Police Department due to the fire apparatus in the roadway.
PVFC Units on scene: E291, T297, SU298, ATV29
BCoFD Units on scene: TOW17, B17, U17, USAR17, BOAT17. DC2, M10, EMS1, SAFETY1
