The Coffeyville Fire Department was dispatched to Brown Rd and 1000 in Labette County yesterday morning, on a mutual aid request from the Edna Fire Department for a water rescue. Coffeyville Fire responded with a three man boat crew and rescued a female motorist who was stranded in high water. Crews successfully rescued her from the roof of her car without any injuries. Also yesterday morning CFD responded to a mutual aid request from Cherryvale Rural Fire to assist a resident in evacuating from their home after high water had risen into it.
CFD wants you to remember, when it comes to high water, turn around, don't drown.
