News & Announcements
  December 12  00:30 Hrs
  the Romney Fire Company was alerted for their rope rescue team to assist
  the Augusta Rescue Squad, North River Fire Dept., and Hampshire County Sheriff's  Office
  with a body recovery off of Rt. 29 S near Delray, WV.
  Rescue 1 and Brush 1-60 responded to the scene to find high waters making access to  the   residence impassible by a low-water bridge.
  The only access was by a free-hanging wooden foot-bridge.
  Due to the weakness of the bridge, it was not possible for multiple operatives to safely
  occupy the bridge at one time.
  Haul teams were placed at both ends of the span and a backboard was employed to
  ferry the body across the bridge.
