6/6/20 14:37hrs the dive team was dispatched to assist FD 21 (Pine Grove Twp.) on a water rescue. The additional was given of 2 kayakers stranded in the middle of a section of the Swatara Creek off of Swopes valley road. Units from FD 21 arrived located and made contact with the kayakers who were uninjured but unable to continue down river due to large trees and debris creating a strainer blocking the waterway. It was determined that due to the location the best method to extract them would be by boat. The dive team utilized its two inflatables, launching one as the primary boat and the second staging as backup/safety. The two paddlers and their kayaks were retrieved and brought back upstream to the launch point and all units cleared
