Rescuers Prepare for Danger on New Hampshire’s Piscataqua River
August 11, 2013
Members of the Portsmouth, New Hampshire Fire Department recently took part in a river rescue training operation in the Piscataqua River, according to an article on SeacoastOnline.com.
The river has one of the swiftest and strongest tidal currents in the country. It is unrelenting and can be unforgiving at times, as evidenced by the loss of human life and the many mishaps in which mariners have found themselves while attempting to navigate the waterway.
