Tonights Drill consisted of a quick classroom discussion on standpipe operations and then a walk thru of 1 Stonehouse Court (27-13). Engine Tanker, Engine and Special Unit 27 with 18 Volunteers loaded up and drilled on apparatus positioning and running lines off of standpipes. With standpipes being very rare in the greater Buchanan Valley Area, this drill was very important to keep up the skills of our firefighters. BVFD would like to Thank The Village of Laurel Run for their continued of BVFD and their commitment to resident safety. #BVFD27 #Drillnight
