Water Tender

Water tenders carry large amounts of water for both structural and wildland firefighting.  In non-hydrated areas, being able to supply water to a fire scene is often a challenge.  A tender shuttle can provide water from a water source to the fire scene.  The round-trip travel distance will determine the number of tenders needed at the scene.

Tender 291 - 2015 Rosenbauer Peterbilt

Our 2015 Peterbilt tender holds 3,000 gallons and pumps at 750 gallons-per-minute.  The tender is in great shape and should be replaced when it is 20 years old.  Having a 3,000 gallon tender along with a 30,000 gallon tender refill cistern at each satellite fire station would be ideal for landowners in these response areas.
