Weekly Drill: No. 43 - Wet Barrel Fire Hydrants

Drill # 43: Wet Barrel Fire Hydrants

Readers will learn about wet barrel fire hydrants, which are used exclusively in milder climates, and see the advantages it has over dry barrel hydrants.

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area, and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
