So my department has a 4500 gallon tri-axle monster of a tanker that we have given the nickname "the whale." I want to know if anyone has anything bigger. I dont know how to upload a photo from a differant computer but if you check out my page there is a pix of it somewhere. You will notice it (the big white truck) LOL
wow!!!! thats a big tanker, my volunteer fire department has a 2000 gallon tanker with a front mount pump on it. that is not even close to your truck. we use it alot for mutual aids nd for all of our fires.
Well, that's interesting! The post I made that comment about, added by someone calling himself 'Aussie Firery', has disappeared! That posters' comments, and a thread he started, and his home page all raised questions for me. I've passed those questions on to the Web Master. I suppose I could attempt to remove my post as well, but then your comment would look strange - so I'll leave this little 'sub thread' as it is. Sorry about any confusion Dustin.
Is bigger really better? I read in Popular Science Magazine about the latest firefighting tool called FIT. It is on www.arasafety.com It is a round canister with a handle which looks like a cross between a frizby and a lunchbox! Pull cord, throw into fire and it will emit a chemical mist potassium chloride) that keeps the blaze from spreading. It will cool a room from 1,000F to 300degrees in 10 seconds.
