Make way for ducklings

Happy ending as Mama Duck and duckling swim into Echo Lake


Story and photos from Shoreline Fire

Shoreline Fire, with help from their friends, rescued four ducklings from a drain on Aurora, only to lose one down another drain!

Fire blocks off the southbound lane on Aurora as a responder
reaches far into the drain to retrieve the ducklings, only to have
one fall in another drain. On Aurora just south of 205th St.


Herdling ducklings
The little one was rescued again and the whole family was corralled across Aurora, and down the street to Echo Lake.



Thanks to City of Edmonds, Shoreline CRT (Customer Response Team), and an awesome female resident who stayed with Mama Duck waiting for the rescue and our Fire Prevention crew.

Maybe for a couple months in the spring we could have some chicken wire small gauge covering on the drains close by the wetlands? There are probably babies we don't see going down the drains...

Way to go, Shoreline Fire!
Such a sweet story. Awesome job.
You're the best. Thanks! ;)
