During our October 26th/27th seminar in the Town of Waukesha, Wisconsin, we encountered another new tanker....this one built by Pierce for the North Prairie Fire Department. Tender 3591 carries 3,000 gallons of water and is built on a Freightliner chassis. The rig is also equipped with a 1,000 gpm pump and carries a 3,000-gallon dump tank. For loading and dumping the new tender has a 4-inch Fireman's Friend valve and a Newton swivel chute. The tender was built to haul water, dump it, and get back on the road for more. The added feature of the 1,000 gpm pump allows for nurse tender operations should the situation warrant such operation. You can check out our Facebook Live walk-around video that we shot while in Wisconsin.
