We have a 3000 gl KW . Dumps on each side & 1 in back. Also 1500 gpm pump. When we get a call we also have 4 more dept. coming. I think 2 are 1800 gal , 1 is 2500 & 1 is 3500. We go out the door 5500gal. Have a 5 rateing hauling water. Has any one heard of Turbo draft, works good in lakes, pools creeks. Works better than floating pumps?

What do you guys think of the vacum tanker system? Some of the guys talked about wanting to get one. Are they all they are cracked up to be?

Our tanker is 1500 Gallons... but it is a "vacu-tanker"... refills in SIX MINUTES... then we are on our way back to the scene! Guess they figured the fast refills made up for the "smaller" tank...

Wanted to share a story . We were at a house fire when the news people showed up wanting an interview, they asked how much water we could supply at one time. Our answer was if we get all our trucks in route we can supply 30,000 gallons. What was said on T.V was we could supply 300,000 gallons in one truck, and showed a picture of our 2200 gallon tanker. Needless to say Chiefs from other departments said as long as you bring that truck we want you on our scene.. Of course they new the difference.

My first department was known as the county water boys. Things have really changed around here, Once the city of springfield had to call on a volunteer dept. to supply water for a large structure. We have a fleet of 6 tankers,89 international called the flame, 1976 ford named Sully, 1985 chevy named kodiac, Theres a very old milk truck, (gotta go) a1976 chevy (the piece) 76 ford The ghost. but things are looking up very soon we will be taking delivery of our new pumper from deep south.
