Washington Twp. fire crews rescue 6 ducklings

Washington Twp. firefighters rescued six ducklings Monday morning from a storm drain and reunited them with their duck mother.

Crews had to go below ground to get to the ducklings, so they turned the rescue mission into a training session as well.

“RescueEngine 45 made a successful rescue today, six times over,” the department said in an opening statement on its social media post.

Crews trained on below grade access and air quality monitoring while working to save the ducklings, one at a time.
