New Training Feature at Main Station
We’re excited to report that a great new training feature is near completion at our main station. We are having a hydrant installed in the rear lot. The hydrant is not on a water line, but is piped to an inlet that can be supplied by a tanker or pumper. The hydrant is functional, so we will be able to practice making hydrant connections, and flow water just as if the hydrant was on a waterline. Using fire hydrants on the streets in community for training can cause problems such as dirty water for residents, and traffic hazards. We would like to thank the West View Water Authority, Pine Township Public Works Department, and Vrable Plumbing for making this project come together.
