Barn Fire in Corry, PA
In Corry, Pennsylvania, a rural barn fire broke out, posing significant challenges due to the lack of hydrants.

The TurboDraft allowed the Engine Company to access the canal and provide water to mitigate the incident. This innovative solution ensured a continuous water supply despite the obstacles presented by the accident scene.
