Big on storage. Big on flexibility. Big on performance.



Tankers, also called tenders, were originally designed to be a simple water-hauler for situations in which there is no fire hydrant at a fire scene. Today, tankers are fire apparatus designed to meet the specific needs of the department they represent, carrying more equipment and ability to be frontline engines if needed. Pierce tankers are flexible enough to be configured to meet those needs of the department.
