Drafting Training
By Minquas Fire Company No. 2
April 30, 2017

This morning, members took some time to practice drafting. Drafting is a technique used to establish a water supply using bodies of water as opposed to tank water or hydrants. Members setup the equipment needed and began to draft the water from the pond, bring it into the engine, and discharge it back out. Once we had the water coming in, ENG 46-2 supplied ENG 46-1 and began discharging from the deck gun and a ground monitor. ENG 46-1 discharged through its deck gun and ground monitor as well. It was a good review and members will continue training with the nice weather coming back around.

Units: ENG 46-1, ENG 46-2, Asst 46
