Pumper Tanker Engine 62-5

BACK to Apparatus        HOME

   Engine 62-5 is a 2002 American Le France pumper tanker.  It is equipped with a 2250 Gallon Per Minute pump and a 3576 gallon water tank, which is a "small swimming pool".  This pumper tanker replaced the Tanker 62. Not only does this truck carry a lot of water, it is fully equipped to fight fires. There is room for the driver/engineer, officer, and four (4) crew.

   A piece of interesting information. Looking up on Google, a "normal" bath uses about 30-40 gallons of water. If we use 35 gallons for a bath, that would be about 100 baths! Another way to look at this would be one bath a day for, around, 3 months!
