    Question Wildland Engine types...definitions?

    I am working on a grant to buy a combination structural/interface pumper and want to get my terminology right. What are the types of wildland engines & which one am I talking about?

    I am more than just a serious basketball fan. I am a life-long addict. I was addicted from birth, in fact, because I was born in Kentucky.
