Area firefighters and first responders have spent time this week training with one of the newest tools at their disposal. Mid-County, Osage Beach, and Sunrise Beach Fire Protection Districts conducted on-the-water training exercises in conjunction with the Camden County Dispatch Center. They were working with the new Raft-Up SOS app, which utilizes your phone’s GPS technology to help authorities find you in case of an emergency on the lake. Osage Beach Fire Chief Jeff Dorhauer is confident that the app will be a valuable asset.
The Raft Up app is free to download and use and is available on both iOS and Android operating systems.
