Kingston FD debuts dive team

The Kingston Fire Department has started a dive team that will assist the Roane County Rescue Squad. The dive team is made up of volunteers, and will give authorities another resource to help out in emergency situations. Officials say having a dive team in Kingston makes a lot of sense because of all of the city’s waterfront areas. The fire department took it upon themselves to start the dive team, which will have divers working shifts every day. 11 people are on the the team. The new team has its own dive boat that it was able to purchase thanks to donations received during several fundraisers. The team was formed at no cost to taxpayers.
