Prescott Fire crews helped two groups of hikers Saturday at Watson Lake. The first group involved two women who were out hiking and climbed up and over to Watson Lake Dam, but didn’t bring any water. A boat from the Prescott Fire Department’s technical rescue station was sent to escort them from the area. The second group were two ladies hiking the “Over The Hill” trail and ended up running out of water. Crews arrived and brought them extra water and they were able to hike out of the area safely. Authorities say as temperatures rise, it’s very important to wear suitable clothes, have plenty of water and snacks and have a fully-charged cell phone with you when you are hiking and enjoying the outdoors.
