Manalapan Fire Co #1 was invited to a joint class with the NJFFS, South Old Bridge Fire Dept., Morganville Fire Dept., and the NJFFS aircraft Bravo 1. This class was to train local firemen on filling the new aircraft with water for a dump on large brush fires. The training consisted of approaching the plane, connecting to the plane and filling the water tank. The aircraft can hold approximately 500 gallons of water and either makes one large dump or several smaller dumps. The aircraft is a fixed wing jet plane and flies at an average speed of 160 mph. This was a great learning experience and those who made it had a good time. Thank you NJFFS and B10.

brother firemen. Thank you to Goodwill Hose Company (87-3) for the invite and
