If you notice the bay for UMFC's Marine 71 is Empty. The reason it is empty is because Marine 71 & Rescue 71 were dispatched just before 9pm to assist Yardley Makefield Fire Co. for a report of multiple people in the Delaware River. UMFC Firefighters/Swiftwater personnel assisted Yardley Makefield Fire Co, Union Fire Company & Rescue Squad, West Trenton Fire Co, Morrisville Fire Department, Yardley Makefield EMS, St Mary EMS, Lower Makefield Police, Upper Makefield Police & Phila Police Tac Air 1 to rescue nine people from the Delaware River.

The Delaware River is high and moving fast due to excessive rain. There is also alot of debris floating down. Please stay out of the river for recreation until the levels go down.

Thank all of you for your service. Never ending calls to the River !!!

Nine?!?!!!!

They should be cited for ignoring all the warnings and river bans and wasting valuable resources.

I'm so sorry people keep putting our first responders in danger by going on the river. Thank you for all you do to keep our community safe.

Thank you to our Fire and Police Departments. Sounds like they should be given a ticket or a fine, for not following the warnings posted about the conditions of the river.

They should be billed for the cost of the rescue.

Thank you all for your heroic service.

My dad risked his life many times saving people on that river when they shouldn’t have been anywhere near it! People need to understand that the river is very dangerous!!!

Stay safe

Thank you to you and your peers.

Nice save by all!
