Tanker Shuttle Drill
By Chief Mike Devito
July 27, 2021

For drill this past Monday, South Salem hosted a Battalion tanker shuttle drill. This training is essential as there are no fire hydrants in the South Salem Fire District or many of our neighboring districts. When there is a fire, all water comes from drafting out of preplanned water sources as well as mutual aid tankers.

Afterwards, everyone gathered for a BBQ. Thank you to our neighboring Departments for assisting us with this drill. And a special thanks to photographer Charlie Boyce from Tarrytown FD for providing us with some great photos of the drill.

Training is held every Monday at 7pm at the South Salem Firehouse. If you are interested in joining, please stop by and fill out an application.
