Newton County Rescue and Recovery Pancake Feed

Local News

It’s just the first week of April and it’s the seventh time they have been called to assist, this time in a nearby Missouri County.  A few weeks back it was in Northwest Arkansas at Beaver Lake to assist in the recovery of a 30-year-old man who had fallen off his boat while fishing with a friend.  

Lt. Jason La Due of Newton County Rescue and Recovery tells us, “We’re getting into where we are going to start getting real busy. Storm season with flooding and the potential for tornados.”

They are a varied team, a Land Based Search Team using trained personnel and highly trained K-‘s. A Dive/Water Rescue Team comprised of ERDI certified rescue divers able to conduct water rescue and recovery operations. They are dedicated and well-trained volunteers who are ready to respond at a moments notice to assist  during all emergencies, both large and small.
