This evening the engine company apparatus and crews headed out to the northwest part of our area on Pitney Rd. to participate in a rural water movement drill. Our drill simulated arriving at a working fire in an area not served by a public water system. The first arriving engine laid out supply line from the water source which in this case was the Stauffer Run. Using Tanker 41 from Bird in Hand, the tanker arrived and began feeding the “scene” while Engine 63-2 arrived and was assigned to set up a draft from Stauffer Run. The goal of the drill was to establish the draft before the tanker was out of water and to flow 1500 GPM (Gallons per Minute) at the “scene once the draft was established. the crews were successful and the water flow to the “scene” was maintained from the arrival of Engine 63-1. While 90% of our run area is served by a municipal water system with hydrants, we do have a portion of our area where we would need to conduct an operation like this in the event of a fire so it is important that our personnel know how to operate in any environment. Thank you to Bird in Hand for bringing the Tanker out.
