Large Diameter Hose Strike Team Drill

Oreland Fire Co. participated in the Montgomery County Large Diameter Hose Strike Team Drill this morning. The strike team used two engines to draft water from the Schuylkill River at the Haws Lane boat ramp in Norristown. Using relay engines from across the county, the team laid two 5-inch supply lines for a half-mile to just past Buttonwood Street and pumped well over 3,000 gallons of minute to near the “target hazard,” a furniture warehouse.
