Penfield Assists With Search

Penfield Fire was called upon yesterday to help Webster search for a missing elderly man in the frigid cold temperatures.  The missing individual had some health issues and wandered away from his home in West Webster.  Because the man's where abouts spanned two fire districts both West Webster and Webster Fire were tied up searching areas in there respective district.   The victim was known to walk up to 10 miles in previous incidents. 
Penfield was called upon just after 12:15 to assist Webster Fire search an area north of State and Iroquois St.  Penfield searched for about an hour and a half in the woods and fields before being recalled to a staging area at Jackson and State. 
At 3:30 with multiple agencies spanning from Wayne County to as far away Hilton, Hamilin, Spencerport, and Clifton (just to name a few) Penfield volunteer firefighters began a line search from walking in a straight line from State Rd all the way to Plank Rd going throughneighborhoods, fields, heavy woods, and let me tell you trying to jump over chain link fences in turnout gear with a negative wind chill is not fun.    There were 38 volunteer firefighters mixed together from the multi-agency response that proceeded to make the trek from State Rd south bound across the land when about 45 minutes into it the search was called off as the victim was found actually in West Webster's fire district.   Penfield returned to quarters at about 5PM.
