On 8/28/2022, Engine 3 participated in a New London County rural water supply drill. Companies assembled at Yantic's station and went over the expectations of the day. A fill site was established at the Bozrah Moose Lodge on Fitchville Road where 2 Turbodrafts were used to draw water out of the pond. Following that it was pumped up the hill and distributed to the tankers. The tankers shuttled the water to Nordson on Connecticut Ave. where 5 drop tanks were set up. Two engines drafted from the drop tanks and pumped the water to two tower ladders. Departments that participated in the drill consisted of Norwich, Taftville, Yantic, Occum, East Great Plain, Laurel Hill, Bozrah, Franklin, Canterbury, Colchester, Lebanon, Montville, Mohegan, Chesterfield, Oakdale, Jewett City, Mansfield and Wequetquock.
