Tender 6

Purpose of Apparatus
  • Tender 6 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 6 can also be used as a fill site for brush trucks for firefighter's Indian packs, and depending on the area, even fighting a brush/grass fire.
  • Tender 6 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 6 is more versatile than just carrying water
