With Harbour Pool closed, firefighters utilized the space to train.
The Fort Saskatchewan Fire Department and a few members from the Sturgeon County Fire Department teamed up to get some hands on training in water rescue.
"We're practicing to do both ice water rescue techniques and swift water rescue techniques," said Fort Saskatchewan Fire Department deputy fire chief Paul Prevost.
12 fire fighters took part in the training on Thursday.
"We hope to do more training this year but we do practices regularly on both the techniques," added Prevost.
The department has been using the pool since the start of January.
Roughly 20 members at the Fort Saskatchewan Fire Department have been trained in water rescue.
