|A group of members took advantage of a rain-free evening to spend some time on pump operations for drill night. Both engines traveled to the pond on Mount Carmel Rd in Orrtanna behind Knouse Foods where members practiced drafting and supplying. Current pump operators got a chance to refresh and future pump operators were able to get some hands on time and start learning some basics. The drill was well attended. Thank you to all who took time out of your evening to participate!|
