What an amazing rescue. The biggest thank you to the Kelowna Fire Department Engine Crew 1 who responded to the call and jumped to action to save these little ducklings that fell down a 15 ft storm drain. With help from the Kelowna RCMP and City of Kelowna crew we were able to rescue all 7 babies who were luckily not harmed. We then reunited them with their very worried mom! . . . . . #wildliferescue #kelownafiredepartment #kelownarcmp #kelownabc #community
