First arriving units established a water supply off the hydrant system and began stretching ground monitors and 2.5″ handlines. A secondary water supply was established at Jackson Run where it passes under South State St. A 750gpm portable pump drafted from the Conewango Creek for a 3rd water supply. Firefighters from North Warren, Glade, Russell, Lander, Pleasant, Starbrick, Scandia, Clarendon, and Youngsville supplied manpower and equipment.

Upcoming Rope Rescue Training

All,

The last of the rope rescue equipment has arrived. We will be gettng into rope rescue in a couple of weeks. Please brush up on your knots to make the training go smoother and without delay. The more time you spend at home becoming proficient with your knots the less time we will have to spend reviewing them during drill. That will leave us more time doing scenarios. Please review the videos and websites below. Become familiar with the material in the websites because we will cover most of it.
