Drafting and pump operations training

On Monday, August 9, 2021 Crescent Township firefighters took Engine 2 down to the Ohio River to practice drafting water from the river, as well as pump operations. This was definitely a good and very valuable training for the firefighters to keep their skills up. There may be times that fire hydrants may not be available, in which case firefighters would have to set up tanker operations, or would have to draft water from an available source, such as the river, pond, lake, creek and even a swimming pool.
