July 31, 2014
ew York, NY -- The fire district of Watkins Glen, New York is 58 square miles. Only some 20 percent of their area - roughly 12 square miles - is equipped with fire hydrants, posing a major challenge to Chief Smith, the department's fire chief. "We and our mutual aid partners are heavily dependent upon mobile water to execute our firefighting obligations in this rural response area," he says.
