Shoreline Fire crews spent some time at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park this week, running through drills on fighting brush fires.

Shoreline does not get the huge wildfires common in rural parts of the state, but in dry seasons there are a significant number of small brush fires.

The techniques are different from structure fires. One of the challenges is getting to the water source. Trucks carry 500 gallons of water and can hook to another truck if there is a delay in hooking to a hydrant.
