Hunt for Draft Points
The Weston, Conn., Volunteer Fire Department has appointed a committee to determine the best areas for water holes. The measure was taken recently because there are only a few places presently available in the town where tank trucks can draw water.
Fire Chief John O’ Brien said that the increase of building in the town has caused the department to search for new water sources for use in case of fire. The water hole is created by digging a small hole at a source of water, such as a small stream. The reservoir thus created is a convenient draft point for obtaining water.
