The first annual water shuttle class hosted by Husky® Portable Containment was held on June 1st and 2nd and went off without a hitch. Seven local fire departments participated in the event. Bob Noll and Steve Edwards, who have been teaching water shuttle classes for over 20 years and have vast knowledge of the in's and out's of water shuttle and drafting exercises, were the instructors for the class. Husky Portable Containment owner Jay Claeys had this to say about the event, "This was a great opportunity for us to get to know more of the rural firefighters from the surrounding area. I have been involved with several shuttle classes throughout the country and I do believe they are an integral part of rural firefighter training."
