Cronomer Valley and Monroe FD-Dive Team held a drill at Plum Point in New Windsor on July 19th. Divers suited up and were checked by members of their departments before entering the Hudson River. A dummy was placed in the river while divers hooked up to an onshore rope and dove into the water, searching in the area where the male subject was last scene. After 45 minutes, the drill time given for the exercise, it was determined that the dummy had drifted down the Hudson due to the current. After the drill all divers were decontaminated. Cronomer Valley FD and Monroe FD train together once a month.
