On Sunday, May 19th, crews from the Albion VFD and surrounding companies in Erie County (PA) and nearby Ohio refined their water hauling skills by participating in a 2-hour water supply drill as part of our 16-hr Rural Water Supply Operations Seminar. The drill was the culmination of the weekend and gave folks the opportunity to use best practices and their own equipment to support a 500 gpm flow uninterrupted for 2-hours. Five tankers and three engines were used to support the operation and a peak flow of 800 gpm was achieved during the last 30-minutes of the drill. The rigs hauling water did so over a 3-mile course at an old airport. Water supply for the drill was a large pond also located on the airport property.

Many thanks to the Albion VFD and the Erie County Firefighters Association for sponsoring and hosting the seminar. Instructors for the weekend were Mark Davis and Alan Butsch. A complete summary will be posted on our Home Page in a couple of weeks.

Units: Albion Engine 623, Cranesville Engine 602, Perry Hi-Way Engine 434, Perry Hi-Way Tanker 435, Franklin Twp Engine 722, Franklin Twp Tanker 725, Springboro Pumper/Tanker 21-5, and Randolph Tanker 18-5
