Pumper Tanker


Pumper Tanker



Water transport plus firefighting. 

Pumper Tanker

When your department requires an all-purpose vehicle to perform the dual roles of water transport and on-the-spot firefighting, Pierce brings you a variety of options. Holes and options are pre-fit prior to the paint process on every custom tanker. So the integrity of the painted surface is never compromised.

Yes. We build our own foam systems.

Pierce® Foam Systems

Pierce is the only manufacturer that designs and builds fire apparatus with their own proprietary foam systems. That's integration.
