County Tender Taskforce Drill

     

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Sunday Morning personnel from East Greenwich Township Fire & Rescue travelled to Franklin Township to participate in a County Wide Tender Taskforce Drill.  Tender 1914 and Engine Co 1912 were used to practice rural water supplies operations.  Crews from around Gloucester County and Atlantic County shuttled water to the Main Road School to supply the Ladder Pipes that were being used to simulate water consumption at a real fire.  Crews were in service for 4 hours. 

While most of East Greenwich Township is covered by city water lines, we still have a portion of Mickleton that utilizes well water at individual homes.  For that reason we operate a 1996 Freightliner/Semo 3000 gallon Water Tender for water supply in our rural areas.  If we were to get a large house fire in these non hydranted areas, we have mutual aid agreements in place with the other fire departments around the county to provide water supply to support our operations.  For this reason we will host a County Wide Tender Taskforce Drill in the fall of 2015.  Photos can be viewed on the link below.
