Dorchester Water Shuttle Drill"
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

By Firefighter Kevin Carr
June 30, 2019

The Dorchester County Volunteer Fireman's Association hosted a "Water Shuttle Drill" this morning with 10 companies sending 4members & equipment. The volunteers came together to practice and learn techniques for moving big water in the non-hydrant environment. This drill gave the volunteers the opportunity to set up a fire scene and witness the challenges in moving big water in this rural setting . With more than 50% of the county being non-hydrant and volunteer membership dwindling the companies must be proficient in the art of working together. The volunteers practiced and learned from each other today in a controlled environment to help be ready for a fire in an uncontrolled environment. (Breakfast was provided via Church Creek VFD, & Lunch was provided via Taylors Island VFD)

Units: Station 1 (Cambridge) Engine 1-3, Station 6 (Hurlock), Station 16 (Secretary), Station 26 (Eldorado Brookview), Station 31 (Neck District), Station 46 (Church Creek), Station 56 (Madison), Station 61 (Linkwood -Salem), Station 66 (Taylors Island)
Mutual Aid: Talbot Station 30 (Trappe), DCEMS PM500
