Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017 13A INSIDE THE FIREHOUSE TOM FORSTER Fire Chief Plumas Eureka Fire Department A proud team of five firef~,hters from the Quincy Fire Protection District won the annual Muster at the Fair, for the second year in a row. Taking first place in three of the four events, Quincy dominated the Muster, losing only in the Water Polo competition. Fire Musters in America date back to 1849, when the Rrst one was held in Bath, Maine. They often feature events with historical equipment, but the Plumas County muster was designed to allow fire departments without antique fire engines and other apparatus to join in the fun. The half-day competition featured four events: 1) The Chief Jim Hamblin Bucket Brigade (named in honor of the Indian Valley chief). 2) A race donning protective clothing and self.contained breathing apparatus. 3) A charged fire hose line extension nicknamed "The Human Hose Clamp." 4) The "Water Polo" event. While six teams were originally signed up to compete, three had to drop out due to accumulated schedule backups, following the emergency coverage for structure protection in Quincy during the Minerva Fire. Thankfully, the fire was mostly contained by the day of the event, and all local government resources had been released. A last-minute call for a fourth team was met graciously by Rrefighters coming together from the Eastern Plumas Rural, See Muster, page 14A Competitors don protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus for the fastest cumulative team time.
