Fire, rescue blotter

The Valley Regional Fire Authority responded to 213 calls for service between May 18 and May 16, among them the following:

MAY 18

River Rescue: 2:10 p.m., (Maple Valley). VRFA Water Rescue personnel, along with the Zone 3 Swift Water Rescue Teams, were dispatched to people reportedly stranded in the Cedar River near Cedar Grove Park in Maple Valley. After locating the stranded party, it was determined that two young adults were uninjured after their boat sank and needed technical assistance to make it to the shore. VRFA personnel assisted with the recovery of the people from the sand bar on which they were stranded. Water conditions were swift and cold.

MAY 17

Missing Kayaker: 1:15 p.m., (Palmer Kanasket State Park). VRFA water rescue personnel were dispatched to assist Fire District 44 with finding a missing Kayaker in the Green River Gorge. Team members met with units from Fire District 44 and the Renton dive team at the Franklin Bridge to plan the operation.

The King County Sheriffs Office is investigating the incident.
