Big Water Rig - Easton, Maryland

The Easton VFD (Maryland) operates a 6,000-gallon tanker known as "Flash Flood". Tanker 61 is a 2002, 4-Guys finished product: the tractor is a 2002 Peterbilt and the stainless steel tank was built by Brenner. The rig is equipped with a 1250 gpm Hale fire pump which is powered by a diesel motor; the tanker also has a diesel powered generator. The tanker's primary mission is to serve as a nurse tanker immediately upon arrival at the emergency scene and it can pump off its water at 1250 gpm through LDH. The rig can also draft if needed and is set up with clappered siamese direct tank fills on both sides of the tank so that smaller tankers can pump-off their water into the bigger tanker. The 6000-gallon tanker is basically a twin, 3000-gallon dump tank operation with a 1250 gpm pumper - just all on one set of wheels. Tanker 61 was used to support operations at our recent 2-hr water supply drill in Talbot County, Maryland where participants achieved 1000 GPM Club status with a peak flow of 1760 gpm.
