CHARLES TOWN, W.Va.
Jefferson County's swift water rescue team has disbanded because of a lack of participation.
Lanham says the team would respond whenever someone was stranded or in distress in water.
He says interest in participating with the team has fallen. There are now only three members.
Lanham says a mutual aid agreement has been made with first responders in Washington County, Maryland, until a new water rescue team is created.
