A horse of many colors is what the Big Spring Family Aquatic Center has turned out to be.

During the summer, families were able to enjoy swim time and now the pool has closed, the city is still putting it to use. Big Spring Fire Department recently held rapid water rescue training at the facility.

“We try to do these trainings as often as possible, but lately we haven’t really had a suitable facility and now that we do, we are putting it to use,” Lt. Craig Ferguson said.

The hour-long course was part of the firefighters’ continuing education courses, but not part of any state mandated course. However, the firefighters were able to refresh themselves on proper protocol during different scenarios as well as the equipment they would be using.
