Ready For Any Situation

Personnel from Fire Station 16, Clifton, and Battalion Chief 407, C-Shift test a recently installed dry hydrant on Wyckland Drive in the Clifton area of Fairfax County.

A dry hydrant allows for quick access when utilizing a static water source, such as a pond, in areas of the county with no domestic water supply systems. This dry hydrant was recently installed thanks to a grant approved by the Virginia Department of Forestry.

Thanks to Captain Mohler (A-Shift) for coordinating all the necessary efforts.
