Strike Team on Standby For Fires During Water Line Break Situation.
Central County Fire & Rescue (CCFR) has the ability to respond to fires during the water main break situation in the cities of St. Charles and St. Peters.
The water main break has caused water pressure and water supply levels to be critically low for the fire district, along with the cities of St. Peters and St. Charles. Because of this situation, there is a water tanker strike team on standby for fire emergencies.
“If there is a first alarm fire in the District, the five closest CCFR fire trucks and water tankers from Rivers Point, Orchard Farm, Old Monroe, Wentzville and O’Fallon will respond to the incident,” says Mason.
These five trucks combined will provide an additional 14,000 gallons of water, which will allow the District to effectively handle most situations. If more help is needed, mutual aid assistance from other surrounding fire districts is available.
