Water Tender

Photo of Water Tender

Water Tenders are mobile water carriers. Each Tender carries approximately 3,000 gallons of water. Water Tenders are not used to supply water to fire hoses, but merely to provide a source of water for brush rigs and engines at grass fires. It is like a mobile fire hydrant.
