Monday night brought out the best turnout in two years for pump training at Palman’s Farm. Engine 4, Ladder 4 and Squad 4 spent the night drafting, pumping and flowing water. Crews spent four hours practicing with master stream, attack lines, 2 ½” lines, set back lines and supply lines. Crews received much needed practice with rural water supply. Thank you to all the members who came out and to Palman’s Farm for allowing us to use their property. We look forward to having another great training night in two weeks.
