On the evening of Monday July 31st, the South Salem Fire Department’s Tanker joined the Croton Falls Fire Department in a multi agency tanker shuttle drill in North Salem. In the northern regions of Westchester County, there are vast areas that are not served by active fire hydrant systems and fire departments use tankers to shuttle water from lakes/ponds/streams and even pools to fire scenes to be able to put out fires.

The tanker shuttle drill, put on by the Croton Falls FD allows for us to practice our skills at drafting water from remote sources and effectively transporting water to a scene to keeping water flowing. There were 17 departments that joined in for the drill including the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services (WCDES) Field Communications Unit 1. We thank the Croton Falls Fire Department for the invite to this drill.

Units: Croton Falls FD (E148 E149 T8 T88 L67), South Salem T2 & Car 2453, Goldens Bridge T1, Katonah T6, Somers T16, Mahopac 18-4-2, Bedford Hills T5, Brewster 11-4-2, Ridgefield T4, Putnam Lake 23-4-1, Mill Plain T12, Vista T4, Pound Ridge T3, Carmel 12-5-1, Bedford E108, WCDES FC1, Mount Kisco E104, Batt 13.
