Tender 1 - Tatra T1 Tactical Fire Tender.  

     The Tatra is a 6 wheel drive T1 Tactical Fire Tender.  It's primary job is to move large amounts of water from one location to another.  It holds roughly 2500 gallons of water.  It can dump fill a temporary water source (a pumpkin) for use by wildland crews, or it can feed water into another piece of apparatus.  Because it is a tactical water tender it also has the ability to "pump and roll" and fight fire through it's nose mounted water cannon, through hose reels located on each side or in a traditional hose lay configuration.
