Members Work to Test Underground Water Tank Sites

May 26th, 2006

On a nice Friday afternoon, a number of Jacksonville Volunteers took the time to go out and inspect some of the many “dry hydrants” in the first due area. These dry hydrants lead to underground cisterns with capacities from 10,000 to 60,000 gallons of water. These sites are extremely important in rural areas not served by city water. These inspections allowed for verification that everything was working correctly and also allowed for some members to train using the tanker support unit to set up for drafting operations.
