Fire Boat Training...



I will end the week with some photographs of us training on our new fire boat. Our new boat is equipped with a pump and deluge gun capable of flowing 500 gallons per minute. It also has a rescue platform that attaches to the front and a jet motor requiring only six inches of water to operate when it is up on plane. In the top photo Lt. Denny Devoe flows the gun and in the second photo Lt. Devoe pilots the craft while Capt. Dave Eiceman watches.

I find these images extremely crisp and clear. The fact that you can see the water flow so well is remarkable. The last photo is truly well done, as not only was it cropped beautifully but the lighting on the bridge is spectacular. I would love to see that one framed or such...
