Jackson Firefighters Save Ducklings from Storm Drain

JACKSON-Jackson firefighters responded to a call for assistance after a resident reported hearing sounds coming from a sewer drain.   On Sunday morning, May 6th, firefighters from Stations 55 and 54 were dispatched to a call at the Bennetts Mills Plaza.

When firefighters arrived they heard the baby ducks quacking inside the sewer drain.  Firefighters removed the grate from the storm drain and with the assistance of Jackson Township Animal Control, they entered the sewer and rescued twelve baby ducklings. The ducklings were then turned over to the Animal Control officer.
