Actually, it wasn’t really a rescue, but they utilized similar techniques. Rescue Squad members help out with the Clinton Rubber Ducky Race every year.
On Sunday, the 28th Annual Clinton Sunrise Rotary Rubber Ducky Race was held on the South Branch of the Raritan River in downtown Clinton. People could sponsor a duck in the race for $10 and a chance to win one of several prizes
Hundreds of yellow rubber ducks were released by squad members, the duck then went over the falls and raced in the river to the finish line with a large crowd cheering them on.
Proceeds from this annual event supports the American Cancer Society and the Cancer Support Community of Central NJ.
Prizes ranged from a Walt Disney World Trip, to a Travel Voucher from Clark Travel, and to several gift certificates.
After the race was over, the rescue squad retrieved the race’s mascot, who was floating in the middle of the river overseeing the race activities.
