Saturday featured a late-night rescue effort by Van Meter firefighters, as they helped get 13 people off of a sandbar. It was the first time the team used this new air-boat for a real operation, but they say they could never go back to working without it.
In Van Meter, water rescues don’t happen often, there are only a handful of them every summer.
