      We have two of our own and still call for at least two more on structure fires just to make sure not to run out of water. Hell we didn't have hydrants until five years ago, and still only got got them on the main road. So yeah I say we need our two and more.
      The hardest fire to put out is the one that can be avoided by educating the public!

            I recently went to a county practice where the hosting Chief during his debrifing complained about big tankers tying up the fill and dump sites. I took offence to this becauce we had provided a stainless steel 3000 gal tank on a Ford L9000 powered by a 300 horse Cat and a 840 pump big water big speed big pump does it get any better

              We have one. It's used for brush fires, unhydranted areas, and automatic call to airport calls to resupply the AARF trucks.

                Not always, but when we need one, we need one REAL BAD.

                  hydrant? huh?

                  We have a 3000 gallon stainless 79 4guys/gmc and we used to have a 1500 gallon FMC I believe, until january when it was rolled... PA guys probably saw the story on the news if they are in the philly area...
                  There are three truths in life:

                  1. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
                  2. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian faith.
                  3. Two Baptists do not recognize each other in the liquor store.

                    We have three tankers:

                    79 American La France- 1500 gal.
                    76 White GMC- 1500 gal.
                    65 Maxim-Deuce and a Half- 2800 gal.

                    We have these and we still have automatic mutual aid for engines an tankers... Just because we need the man power and out in the country areas....the water...

                      Do we need tankers,oop's "tenders" well I live on an island so mabey not. But I sure can tell you that life's been a little easier since we got one. A 3,000 gal Fiberglass tank on a freightliner chassis and 1200 gpm pump. our s.o.p. is first due engine and tanker roll together on any suspected structure fire. We seem to pump a lot less salt water this way and that helps to cut down on the post incident clean up time, not to mention easer on the trucks Wev'e been down one of our two engines for about a year now and have had to make due with our heavy rescue/pumper 500gal water & 1200 gal. pump. our other engine carry's 1,000 gal. of water as does our ladder truck.
                      We are curently waiting on delivery of two new trucks a 1,000 gal rescue/pumper and a 1,500 gal. pumper /tanker we hope to get them in about a month. Pumping salt water through the old trucks for twenty five years has certainly taken it's toll on them. and laying a half a mile of L.D.H. to a draft site is a bitch to deal with. we still have to from time to time but it's a lot less often.thank goodness!

                      keep it safe out there!!

                        YES, We have two-

                        1992 white/volvo 3000gallon

                        2001 international/e-one 2000gallon

                        For working fire we usually call the nearest aide company's bringing 2 more-

                        1500,3500 gallons more, can flow around 500-650 gpm usually with these all in shuttle 1-2 mile range. We will be getting hydrants in the main town area soon but most of our district will still be rural. Anything needing flows larger brings ldh task force with well over a mile of hose, and flows around 1250-1500gpm.

                          we have a 3000 gallon ford F9000
                          1500 gallon mounted on a Ford f800 with an amercian hooklift (we can use truck for several different bodies.)
                          a 8200 gallon tractor trailer pulled by a Ford F9000 tractor.
                          We also rely on mutual aid from a neighboring dept. with a F-9000 Ford with 2500 gallon. We are going to challenge the ISO water Movement by tanker shuttle in the next few months. Currently ISO class 4 getting ready to have a PPC review hope to go to a class 2 working toward a class 1

                            um, yes. We don't have hydrants, so we need tankers. Why? Do you have one you want to give away? We've got one OOS!
