I recently attended the water supply officer training seminar in Delaware Ohio. It was very informative and reminded me of some options we have that a lot of people forget at times, including myself. Training is always good no matter how long you have been in the service. Thank you, Marvin Miller Captain Colerain Twp. Fire Dept.

Thank you Mark for the "out of service" hydrant signs & the tip leading me to Pollard Water for the "flush only" signs each were a successful step to completing a Got Big Water assessment for our fire district. To date we have added 10 new dry hydrants including a bridge mount. Your assessment is easy to follow loaded with information and very professional.
Regards, Michael J Lombardi Commissioner South, Salem NY Fire District.

Thanks Mark and Al for the great training weekend! I believe this is this best training for LARGE amounts of water there is. Yes we always drafted water and we use dump tanks but these guys really opened our eyes to moving big water with the equipment we already have.I also want to say, small rural fire departments need to combine whatever funds they and there neighbors have and get these guys to do an area wide seminar.It's worth every pancake or fish basket served!

Just thought you might be interested in this. Looks like it took an hour to set up the tanker task force. Why a houses this big are built without hydrants I'll never know! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=DzmmXVJU2R8#at=619

Comment by Mark Davis: When homes of this style are constructed without residential sprinklers - the FD is already "behind the eight ball" when the 911-call taker answers the phone.

Went to the 2nd day of training in Oconee Co. (SC) -- it was well worth the day! We only have dry hydrants in Mtn. Rest (SC), and the infromation we learned today about dump tanks will be extremely helpful. The instructor was very knowledgeable on water tank operations. Thank you GBW for a great day of training! And thank you to Chief King and Chief Loftis for setting up this training opporunity. ~ LWW
