Purpose of Apparatus
Tender 7 is used to supply water to incidents when there is no water source readily available, such as a fire hydrant. These incidents include structure fires, brush/grass fires, vehicle fires and others normally in rural areas.
Tender 7 can also be used as a fill site for brush trucks for firefighter's Indian packs.
Tender 7 is also used to protect the scene during traffic accidents by blocking off the road. Firefighters, EMS, and police safety is of main importance during these incidents.
All in all, Tender 7 is more versatile than just carrying water
