2,500 Gallon Water Tender Apparatus

LAFD Water Tender

The LAFD utilizes water tenders to support firefighting in situations where water supply may be impacted. This is a new example of an LAFD Water Tender. This is one of two identical 2500 gallon units built to demanding Los Angeles Fire Department specifications by KME (Kovatch) on 2010 Peterbilt chassis. And, while assigned to a specific fire station, these water tenders service the entire City of Los Angeles. They are also available for mutual aid responses to communities that collaborate and cooperate with the LAFD.
