Rush, Monroe County, New York: Man's aircraft goes off radar, sparks search

Rochester, New York Airport Firefighters - IAFF Local 1636

Off Airport incidents

This afternoon, we were notified by #ROC ATC of a possible aircraft down in Rush. Two Airport Firefighters immediately responded with Rescue 5 to assist Rush Volunteer Fire Department and others at the scene. After an extensive search by several fire and law enforcement agencies, it was discovered a local resident had been flying in the area earlier in the day and did not require any assistance. Our members are glad that this incident turned out the way it did.

This is the second consecutive day that Rescue 5 has responded off-field to assist another agency. As we’ve stated before, this is a testament to the inter-agency cooperation that exists in our area.

Several law enforcement agencies responded to a field in Rush Saturday afternoon, after it was believed that a small plane may have crashed in the area.
