Practice Water Shuttle in Preparation for PIAL Rating

A water shuttle was only one factor in completing the Property Insurance Association of Louisiana (PIAL) test to achieve a better insurance rating for the residents in Caddo Fire District No. six. In order to prove CFD#6 was capable fo transporting a designated amount of water to a a designated point to release at a certain amount of pressure, all paid firefighters and volunteers were called on to participate. In addition, members of othe district firefighting teams were asked to assist. (In a real fire, other districts are often called up for assistance.)

Following the shuttle, CFD#6 hosted a fish fry for all the participants.
