Underwater Rescue and Recovery Team

(URRT)

 

The purpose of the Underwater Rescue and Recovery Team (URRT) is to provide an organized team of qualified personnel specifically trained and equipped to meet the needs of any water related incident within the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District, F.A.S.T., and MABAS Division areas.

The dive team is actively involved in the following agencies, Fire Agency Specialty Team, or "F.A.S.T.", and the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System, or "MABAS" Divisions XII and XVI.

F.A.S.T. is comprised of four departments, Lisle-Woodridge, Westmont, Lemont, and Romeoville. MABAS Divisions XII and XVI dive teams consists of eight departments, Addison, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Lisle-Woodridge, Naperville, Oak Brook, Winfield, and Warrenville.

The Lisle-Woodridge Dive Team consists of approximately 20 divers and support members. Each member has attended specialized training in Water Safety and Public Safety Diving. Each of the divers has obtained the certification of Dive Rescue I Specialist through Dive Rescue International. To date, all of the divers on the team, have achieved this level and most have reached to the level of Dive Rescue II Specialist.

To maintain this level of training, the F.A.S.T. conducts quarterly team drills while the MABAS Team conducts monthly drills within the two divisions. Each member is required to maintain his or her current certification level through the Divisions and keep an active status with our dive team.

Standard Operating Guidelines or SOG’s that were written and approved by the MABAS chiefs are up and running. These SOG’s are modified at the end of each year to better protect the divers and support members regarding concerns of safety and accountability at a dive incident.

     Respectfully,
     Lt. Rudy Chmelik
     URRT Coordinator
