By Mechanicsville Volunteers
May 24, 2021

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.

Our members are always working to better ourselves and one another. During drills like this, we always work to try and find new “tricks of the trade” and simple operations to better serve our community.
