Fire fighters shuttle water in training exercise

July 24, 2013

FiretruckMembers of four rural Oconee County fire departments took part last weekend in a training exercise in which they shuttled water from one location to another. Having the ability to quickly transport water, according to Oconee Fire Chief Charlie King, is essential in areas where no or few hydrants exist. The focus of last Saturday’s training for the Fair Play, South Union, Oakway and Crossroads stations was the ability to efficiently set up water source locations at hydrants and through draft from Lake Hartwell. They also dumped water into remotely-located portable tanks.
