Boone County Honors Dale Appel for 50 Years of Service
Captain Appel formed the team fifty years ago and has served as its leader for most of its existence. Boone County Water Rescue is a regional resource comprised entirely of volunteer professionals who patrol the waterways, perform rescue operations and retrieve items lost in the water. They have provided service to jurisdictions across the Commonwealth and region and have been recognized on numerous occassions for their professionalism and expertise.
Captain Appel leaves the team in good hands, but his vision, leadership and dedication will be sorely missed.
