On Saturday, October 19th members of the Vigilant Hose Company along with other Battalion V (the Northern Frederick County Companies) along with other Frederick, Adams and Franklin County PA organizations participated in a rural water supply farm that was held at the Catoctin Mountain Orchards.

This training opportunity allowed VHC and allied mutual aide partners to get a solid day's training on fire ground water supply operations in non-hydrant areas. With roughly 90% of VHC's response area being in a non-hydrant area this was a well received training. Over twenty five VHC members participated in the exercise.

Interested in joining VHC? Stop by the station anytime or print out an application from the VHC website. Training is 100% free and we are always looking for new volunteers who want to help serve the community.
