This class will discuss various strategies and tactics for rural water movement, from nurse tankers to the rural hitch, drafting operations, vacuum tankers, and the jet syphon. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of these strategies, why a certain strategy may or may not work for your department depending on resources, apparatus placement, pump operations, and assignments. The class will see flow charts and times of loss of water in each strategy.
