Rural Water Supply Class Practical

Buchanan Valley FD hosted a Rural Water Supply class which is wrapping up today with the Practical evolutions. Volunteers from BVFD and neighboring departments attended the 16 hours training class. Today with the support of Arendtsville FC (Reserve Tower 5), Biglerville Hose Co (Tanker 6), Cashtown FC (Tanker 4), Heidlersburg FC (Engine 25-2) and Mont Alto FC (FL Tanker 5), Students setup a Water Supply station and Tanker Shuttle operation. One of the biggest challenges in rural fireground operations is Water Supply. We appreciate the support from our neighboring mutual aid partners helping us train to overcome those challenges !
