(Cedar Rapids, IA) -- Cedar Rapids firefighters are getting new cold water rescue gear as they train at Noelridge Park this week.

The yellow suits provide insulation, and floatation, and are designed for cold water situations.

Members of the Cedar Rapids Fire Department gear up every year to jump in freezing waters and practice self-rescue and assisting victims.
