Underwater Rescue and Recovery Team (URRT)
and
Swiftwater Response Team (SRT)



 

The Lisle-Woodridge Underwater Rescue and Recovery Team (URRT) and Swiftwater Response Team (SRT) exists to provide personnel specifically trained and equipped to meet the needs of all water related incidents within the boundaries of the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District and MABAS Division areas. We are a member of and train closely with the MABAS Division 16 Water Rescue Team. This team consists of technicians (Underwater and Swift) from 5 departments. Those departments are Bolingbrook FD, Downers Grove FD, Naperville FD, Lisle-Woodridge FPD and Warrenville FPD. We currently operate under Standard Operating Guidelines (SOG’s) written and agreed upon by the Division 16 team coordinators and approved by the MABAS Division 16 Chiefs.


Our URRT consists of approximately 20 divers. Each member has attended specialized training in water safety and public safety diving through credible agencies such as Emergency Response Diving International (ERDI) and Dive Rescue International (DRI). These certifications and skills are maintained monthly in District with open water and ice dives as well as pool dives. Semi annually, Division 16 meets and trains together on various topics usually scenario based. In addition to the aforementioned training, each member is required to pass an annual swim/skills test to prove they are up to the challenges that blackwater and rescue diving presents.


Our SRT consists of approximately 7 technicians all certified to the SRT1 level through credible agencies such as Rescue 3 International and North Central Water Rescue. Each member has received extensive training in hydrology, offensive and defensive swimming, size up, site control and scene management for swiftwater and flood response.


Our teams operate and respond out of Station 52 (7393 Woodridge Dr, Woodridge, IL). We maintain a 1999 International “Water Rescue” Squad and 2013 17’ Zodiac MK4 (S525 and 525A) as well as 2 Rescue Engines (north and south) with similar capabilities.

     Respectfully,
     Lt. Kevin Sievert
     URRT/SRT Coordinator
