Thank you Oakland Fire Department for helping protect a whale found in the Oakland Estuary.

The Oakland Fire Department’s Marine 1 fireboat responded to the report of the whale on Sunday evening. The Fire Department’s Water Rescue Team guided the whale to safety by establishing a safety zone for the whale.

Thankfully, they stayed with the whale until it swam out of the Estuary and back into the open waters.
