    Default Two for one?

    If this has been addressed please direct me there, I looked to no avail.

    I realize this is all hypothetical, and I will not get into dates of apparatus due to the shear speculation. Having said all that:

    Is it allowable for us to apply for a pumper with a 2000 gallon tank and replace an existing pumper and an existing tanker?

    Will they frown upon this? We see it as being a great cost-benefit for our department, I know I need to explain that all in the narrative.

    I just need to know, if anyone else does, is this allowable?

    Nothing wrong with that if they both need taking out of service because of safety issues. You can do what you want with whatever vehicles you own too. Just remember at a 2000gal tank you're applying to replace your tanker with the benefit of the new truck also replacing a pumper. Especially if they're both 2 person cabs.

    Thanks Brian!!

    The pumper we would be replacing has a single bench seat and can seat three but it is a manual transmission so that is not the safest thing to do but can be done, and the current tanker seats two.
