Pump Operator Traning - Chestertown Marina, Chestertown

5/15/2020

On Friday, May 15, members of the Chestertown VFC took Engine 6 to the Chestertown Marina to perform in-service training for draft and pump operations. Drafting is the process where water is drawn from a static source such as the river, bay, creek, stream, even a swimming pool. It's most often used now at large fires in areas away from municipal hydrants. We carry large, collapsible drafting basins that can be quickly set-up. One or more engines can establish a draft in one or more of these basins to supply firefighting operations. At the same time, by employing a Tanker Task Force, a system of water shuttles is set up.

Annual Pump Tests

5/14/2020

In order to maintain a high state of equipment readiness and dependability, the Chestertown VFC maintains an aggressive maintenance and testing program on our equipment. While each piece of equipment is regularly inspected by our personnel, we also adhere to the recommendations of the National Fire Protection Association - Pamphlet 1911, the standard for the "Inspection, Maintenance, Testing, and Retirement of In-Service Emergency Vehicles."
