    Static photo of the blivets containing purified water from the South Carolina National Guard’s 741st Quartermaster Company, at Palmetto Health Baptist Hospital in Columbia, S.C., during a statewide flood response, Oct. 10, 2015. Soldiers trained as water purification specialists used reverse osmosis water purification units to filter contaminated water. They were able to pump up to 15,000 gallons of per hour into the hospital from a city fire hydrant, enabling the hospital to remain operational after flood waters compromised the city’s water supply. The South Carolina National Guard has been activated to support state and county emergency management agencies and local first responders as historic flooding impacts counties statewide. Currently, more than 3,000 South Carolina National Guard members are supporting state flood response efforts. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Airman 1st Class Ashleigh S. Pavelek /Released)
