Newberg Fire Department Dedicates Water Rescue Boat to long time volunteer Rescue Diver Jill Dorrell
NFD personnel recently completed a long and arduous process of refubishing an old Yamhill County water rescue boat. This “new to NFD” boat replaces an old boat that has served it’s purpose for many years but never had the water speed to get where the team needed to be when time was of the essense. At the 2011 Newberg Boat Races on the Willamette river this past weekend the NFD Water Rescue Team surprised long time member Jill Dorrell by dedicating and naming the boat the after her. Congradulations Jill!
