South Sumter departments – Cuba, Siloam, Ward, Whitfield, Kinterbish and Morning Star along with Pennington VFD participated in a tanker training session in the Whitfield community. The departments learned how to ¬†work with drop tanks, connect to dry hydrants and transport the water to other tankers in order to use it on scene. This is especially important in areas where conventional water supply is unavailable or compromised. Today’s training is useful when multiple departments are needed to respond to the call at hand. In emergency situations where this type of response is needed, time is of the essence. This drill proved that large quantities of water can be moved quickly and further practices will only increase our efficiency of response time.
