|On April 4th, 2015, the Bungay Fire Brigade was dispatched to Lake Bunggee for a person through the ice.
When crews arrived, they saw one individual located approximately 400 feet from the shore line. Crews
immediately got into special cold water immersion suits and began to make thier way toward the young
man .When Lieutnent Mike Froehlich (photo above, left) came close to the individual the ice broke and the
young man fell in again. While MIke wrapped life safety rope around the victim, FF Nick Webster (Photo
above right) came out with a Stokes basket and the two were able to get the victim out of the water and
pulled to shore by members on shore. He was taken to the hospital and treated for hypothermia.
Because of their brave work the Town of Woodstock awarded them both Firefighter of the Year for 2015
Congratulations for your outstanding work!
