WVLT/Peg Broadcasting News Friday August 28, 2015

The Kingston Fire Department now has a dive team which will assist the Roane County Rescue Squad in aquatic emergencies at no cost to taxpayers. The 11 member dive team consists of all volunteers who will work in shifts each day. Their equipment and boat was purchased through fundraisers and donations. According to Local 8 News, Kingston Fire Chief William Gordon says the dive team is important because Kingston has a vast waterfront area. However, Gordon says he hopes it is something the citizens never need, but if they do, the dive team will be prepared to come to the rescue. (Photo Courtesy WVLT).
