and that can only mean a handful of things for the Firefighters here at Witmer…Water Supply TrainingThis past week during 2 opportunities members were able to practice andor learn various means of Rural Water Supply. Monday night members participated in a township-wide Rural Water Supply drill hosted by our neighbors in Bird-in-Hand. All 4 pieces in the Station participated with Engine 2 and the Tanker participating in the shuttle and dump site operations respectively and Engine 1 participating in a draft site relay utilizing our 5 inch supply line that was close to the scene. The Squad supplimented with manpower and rehab supplies which were welcomed on a hot summer night. The night was a great experience for new members and seasoned veterans alike with many people learning various methods of Rural Water Supply and Engineering Skills that are not easy to practice on a daily basis. On Saturday several members traveled to Mascot Park with the Tanker and Engine 2 to practice some more Engineering drafting and large scale suppression skills. Both pieces were given the opportunity to draft and supply one another with each pieces pump receiving a good workout. All in all both days were great learning experiences for many members of various abilities as we strive to maintain our ability to provide water at fire scenes for ourselves and our surrounding communities.
