Our town held a fire muster a few weeks back. This is a competition between fire departments in several communities. The events based on fire fighting and rescue skills past or present. Due to other commitments, I was only able to attend one event: the bucket brigade. Team of six competed in matches to see which can transfer enough water from a holding tank to fill a barrel perched on a scaffold many meters away. There were teams from several towns and even our town’s women’s auxiliary gave it a try. Fun times!
