Members of the Bakersfield Fire Department on Thursday took part in swift-water rescue training.

Battalion Chief John Frando said the Kern River is especially dangerous this year, following the wet winter.

"Water levels are definitely higher than they've been in years past," Frando said. "With those higher waters comes higher dangers."
