SEELEY LAKE - Seeley - Swan Search & Rescue (SSSAR) volunteers suited up in their Ice Commander suits and went for a swim at the inlet of Salmon Lake Feb. 6. This was part of their continued training to be ready in case there is a need for a cold water rescue.

SSSAR is all volunteer and assists with search and rescue operations year round. For more information or to volunteer contact SSSAR Chief Gerry Connell, 210-1150.
