Pumper Tanker

Water Transportation & On-The-Spot Firefighting. 

Overview

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. Each tanker is custom designed to accommodate the fire department’s water, foam and equipment storage needs. 

Pierce Tankers feature solid, lightweight, corrosion-free polypropylene tanks. The tanks are form-fitted specifically for Pierce vehicles and come with a lifetime warranty. 

We offer multispec painted compartment interiors. The premium quality polyurethane modified multicolor spray finish increases the life of the vehicle. Our state-of-the-art, environmentally advanced painting facility provides an extremely high level of corrosion protection on all tankers.
