Water Tender Fire Truck

Water Tender

In places where a water supply may be questionable, fire departments will utilize a water tender. This is an example of a rural department’s water tender working a small grass fire. Some tenders hold as much as 3,000 gallons of water and are quite similar to the tenders you may see at a construction site. Some tenders have nozzles mounted and most include couplings that allow water to be transferred to a fire engine or Quint.
