Water Rescue Team Joins Clean Up on Clackamas River - 09/06/18

On Sunday September 9, 2018 Firefighters from the Clackamas Fire Swift Water Rescue Team will join in the efforts to keep our rivers clean by taking part in the 16th annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas River. The team will take part by putting two rafts on the water to haul the garbage and debris that the over 300 volunteers collect from the banks and bottom of the river.  "As an active user and steward of the Clackamas River, the Swift Water Rescue Team values the opportunity to keep the river clean and safe while connecting with the hundreds of volunteers that will be attending," says Swift Water Rescue Captain Brent Olson. Clackamas Fire has taken part in this event for several years and looks forward to seeing everyone on the River!
