With Chattahoochee River flowing very near the City of Marietta, Marietta firefighters must have the ability to respond to water rescues. Frequent training is critical. All Marietta Firefighters are trained to the level of Swift Water Awareness, and each year we add more who are trained to the level of Swift Water Technician. While awareness is held mostly in the classroom, those seeking certification as a Technician spend over 40 hours in the water. Browse through our photos from the Water Rescue training exercises.
