Another Great Drill with the WVFD

Fire 3 spent their drill night on August the 18th, learning proper drafting technique for our non-hydrant areas of Charles County.  With multiple fires over the past several weeks requiring this skill for optimal fire ground operations,  Fire 3 decided to be ahead of the ball by ensuring members skills were ready for future draft site operations.
