At 1:52 a.m. Station Rockland received a call from Sector Northern New England about a possible person in the water near the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. At 2:30 a.m. a response boat was launched with a three-person crew to begin a search of the area. The response boat arrived on scene at 4:01 a.m. and began their initial search of the river. At 4:37 a.m. Sector Northern New England notified the response boat that the person in the water had been located on shore by local emergency medical services, so the response boat began transiting back to Station Rockland. At 4:39 a.m. Sector Northern New England called back, alerting the boat crew that the person tried jumping back into the water and directed the response boat to investigate the situation. The response boat arrived on scene at 4:57 a.m. and found the person on shore being treated by EMS. Due to the geographical severity of the person’s location, EMS requested that the response boat transit the person by water to Bucksport. The response boat transported two firefighters and the person to the harbor docks and then returned to the station.
