    Check that.
    The Brush truck is no longer a brush truck. The skid has now been removed and it is simply a pick-up. ( I forgot that we had already changed the number and specs with county, so I left it as brush.)

    A tender is a tanker, I think.
    These are my opinions, not those of my career department, my volunteer company, or my affiliates. And by the way, I'm not a Junior.

    Buy me a drink, sing me a song, take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long.

    Brush is put out of commission during the winter and the third engine is rarely used (it's pretty old... only 2 seats besides the driver and officer, though there is a bar in the back and there used to be tailboard straps )

    Thumbs up Tanker Slang

    I noticed your questions about tankers. I just joined a new company(due to my moving), and its a mainly rural protection area. So yes we have tankers, and a tender is a mini tanker that is used to supply a pumper for a short period of time while the main tanker refills. One of the main differances between a regular full size tanker and a mini tanker (besides the size) is that the mini is hooked directally to the pump like a hydrent would be, where as a full size tanker usually dumps its supply into a portable pool, and the pumper will then draw from it. Tanking is a whole world of a differance from conventional hydrents. I hope this ansers you questions. If you got anymore you can just post, or get my screen name from my profile. Fight on boys.
