Portage Water Rescue Busy, Fundraising Featured

Written by

The Portage County Water Rescue Team has been busy over the past month rescuing kayakers and others from the Cuyahoga River in Kent, and their worn down equipment shows. 

More than 22 people have needed helping getting out of the unusually high and fast river over that time. The water level has risen dramatically and the current is higher than normal due to the heavy rain that's come down, specifically over the month of June.

To help raise money for replacement gear, the Portage County Water Rescue Team is selling T-shirts with their logo on them.
