DC Fireboat During Test

Following up on my earlier post of the fire station for Engine 16, is this video clip that I found on its Web site. I think its interesting to watch a fireboat in actions.

The description of the video is as follows: Engine 16, Tower 3, Fireboat, and Battalion 6 staged a water capacity drill – with the John Glenn supplying the wagon and tower pipes with water directly from the river. The drill was to demonstrate DCFD’s ability to supply water during a potential interruption of a continuous supply.
