On Monday, May 24th, 2021, crews went to a local pond and worked on drafting and maximizing flow. During this drill Engine 24 drafted using all three intakes simultaneously and flowed 2 “Wagon Pipes.” Engine 24 obtained a 2200 gallon per minute flow during the drill.
A special note is the use of a low-level strainer intertwined in the ladder to prevent it from bottoming out in the pond.
