Company 1 Winter Operations Drill – John’s Pond - February 11, 2007

Company 1 spends a few hours on the ice reviewing winter operations. Practice with the hovercraft and some time in water rescue suits could mean the difference between a successful rescue and a recovery. The ice auger and special suction strainer speed up drafting operations. The departments that have municipal water systems aren’t the only ones that get frozen hydrants. Our hydrants, also known as ponds and lakes, freeze too.
