Following a freezing rescue on the Colorado River on New Year's Day, the Grand Junction Fire Department is weathering the elements to train for a freezing rescue on the Connected Lakes.

Four hunters found themselves freezing in the river after their small boat capsized last week.

All four survived thanks to the training the department must take part each year.
