ISO Water Shuttle
Six fire departments joined Harlem-Roscoe for a timed water shuttle directed by ISO Field Rep. Chris Moore. The purpose of the shuttle is to get a better ISO rating in the non-hydranted areas of the Harlem-Roscoe Fire District; to save district residents money on their insurance.
Eight tankers and an engine were used in the shuttle. The engine set up and flowed water as in a real fire. The tankers were then each timed as they dumped their water. Then the tankers were each timed as they were filled from a hydrant. It will be a few months before we get the ruling on whether our rating has improved.
Here are some pictures from the shuttle. We would like to thank the departments that partcipated - Boone Co. Rural #2, North Boone #3, Northwest, Pecatonica, Rockton, & Win-Bur-Sew.
