Early morning control burn with multiple stations.  Station 56 held a control burn of a garage,  it was a chance for many young firefighters to see a lot of what we do.  There was elevated master streams set to protect the house that was no more then thrity feet away. E703 laid two supply lines down the lane to tankers 706 and 606. E56-1 supplied TL5 (Churchill) E56-3 supplied Q6 (Suldersville).  Several Engines and tankers tasked with water shuttle.  Engines filled up and Hartly and tankers filled up at Mud Mill.  The workhorse E701 handled the secondary water source by drafting from a pond onsite.  E701 supplied T51 (Hartly) which ran a second supply line to E56-1 encase of the water shuttle could not keep up.  Water supply was stressed but able to keep up.  E701 was placed in service for only a few minutes.
