Here are some views of Yukon firefighters responding to a call. There are full-time firefighters in Whitehorse as well as volunteer departments in other communities.


Yukon River ice rescue course

The river is dangerous and therefore it’s a good location for real-world training in ice rescue.

The rescuers have been on the river a few times now but I happened to get a closer look Saturday.
