A fire at an airfield, with highly flammable materials everywhere, could be catastrophic. The Bath and Locker House fire shown here highlighted the need for a dependable water supply for firefighting. A pond met that need. It also helped control water drainage and erosion from nearby slopes. This pond is located at the approximate site of the original fire suppression pond.

Before construction of the Fire
Suppression Pond, fires like this
one, in 1941 or 1942, had to be
fought by pumping water from the
creek behind the support buildings,
as these men are doing. What would
have happened if this fire had
started during a dry spell, when the
creek was low?
