In July, Campo Reservation Fire Protection District personnel refreshed drafting skills. Drafting is used in remote locations where water sources such as fire hydrants and stand pipes are not available. Here, Engineer Ortiz is filling a portable tank to provide a source of water. Water is "drafted" from the portable tank into the fire engine's main pump.
