This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

On Sunday morning, July 24th Perkiomen Township volunteers joined together for a Tanker and Pump training with Trappe Fire Company No. 1, Upper Salford Volunteer Fire Company and Skippack Fire Company.

Water was drafted at the by Trappe’s Engine 77 and brought to Lodal Creek Park and unloaded in a 2-hour exercise. Tankers are used to bring water in areas where fire hydrants may be sparse or not nearby. It’s great to train together with other area volunteers so that we all stay ready.
