The article features the pumper/tenders fire trucks used by many fire departments in the U.S. to fight fires. Well-designed water tenders operated by well-trained crews often can provide sustained water flowrates that match or exceed those available from municipal water systems. Further, the availability of a pumper/tender at the scene of the incident also gave firefighters access to all the equipment normally carried on an engine. INSET: A LOOK AT VACUUM TENDERS.
