Hauling Water - Yorkana Style

On August 20th, crews from Community Fire Co. 1 of Yorkana and surrounding areas worked to haul water for 2-hours using tankers as part of our 16-hr Rural Water Supply Operations Seminar. Four engines and four tankers were used to support the 2-hour operation during which a peak flow of 750 gpm was achieved during the latter part of the drill. One of the challenges during the drill was the loss of several tankers due to a barn fire in the southern end of the County. Folks did a nice job of overcoming a few obstacles and were able to build out a 3-tank dump site operation.

Two fill sites were used to support the operation. Both were located at a public boat launch in nearby Wrightsville; the Susquehanna River was the source...so supply was plentiful! Travel distance to the dump site was about a 6-mile round trip.

Many thanks to the folks from Community Fire Co. 1 for their excellent logistical support and hospitality. Instructors for the weekend were Mark Davis and Tim Legore.
