A Water Tender is a specialized piece of firefighting apparatus designed for the sole purpose of transporting water from a water source to a fire scene. Water tenders are capable of drafting water from a stream, lake or hydrant.

Most water tenders are designed to carry loads of 1000 gallons or more. Some may carry upwards of 4000 gallons.

All company officers will use their discretion in calling for water tender assistance and should be alert to areas in their response zones that will require the additional water carried on water tenders.
Company officers having a water tender assigned to their station can take the water tender with their engine (but not in lieu of) when the water tender is needed due to limited water supply.
When a water tender is requested with a driver only, the Company officer is responsible to assign a qualified driver/pump operator.
