On Sunday, March 18th, forty-plus fire department members from across McCurtain County, Oklahoma spent their afternoon running a tanker shuttle to practice their water hauling skills. The drill was the culmination of our 16-hr Rural Water Supply Operations Seminar which focused on tanker shuttle operations. The weekend started off Saturday in Broken Bow reviewing the basics of hauling water and ended up Sunday in nearby Ringold where three engines and six tankers were used to operate a 500 gpm tanker shuttle over a 6.2-mile round trip fill site trip. Many thanks to Chief Mark Hannah and the McCurtain County Firefighters Association for sponsoring and hosting our program. Instructors for the weekend were Mark Davis and Alan Butsch. A complete drill summary will be posted in a couple of weeks.

A 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 5" gated wye was used as the connection point for nurse tanker operations. Ideally, a siamese would work best...but the wye was the only appliance available.

Can you guys give some more detail on that home made pump trailer? And maybe some more pictures? That's a great set up.
