On Sunday afternoon, May 5th, folks from the Shortsville (NY) Fire Department and surrounding areas practiced their water-hauling abilities by participating in a 2-hr water supply drill where the goal was to sustain a 500 gpm flow for the 2-hr period. The drill was the culmination of our 16-hr Rural Water Supply Operations Seminar that was sponsored and hosted by the Shortsville Fire Department. The folks used 3 engines, 8 tankers, and 2 fill sites to support the water shuttle operation. Everyone worked hard to keep the water moving and to expand operations. By the 90-minute mark, flow had reached 1000 gpm where it remained until the end of the drill.

Many thanks to Chief Jason Wagner and the Shortsville FD for their excellent hospitality and logistical support. Instructors for the weekend seminar were Mark Davis and Alan Butsch. A full summary will be posed in a few weeks.
