By Glen Moore Fire Company
July 12, 2018

After a week off from training for the Independence Day holiday, the volunteers from GMFC were back at it last night. The crew continued to focus on water supply. Water supply is the most critical factor for fire suppression, especially in an area where there are no fire hydrants. The crew was split into two groups. One group, mostly comprised of junior firefighters and newer members, focused on porta-tank operations. They set up the porta-tank, hard sleeve, and learned how to complete supply operations with two porta-tanks in service. The other group focused on connecting to dry hydrants. Some members assigned to this group also received their training on pump operations so they could become qualified as driver/operators of the fire apparatus.
