Tender 1661

Tender 1661 is the only Water Tender in the Sutherlin fleet. 1661 is a 2000 Pierce Commercial chassis. Its sole job is to carry water from fire hydrants to fires outside of the city limits. 1661 carries 2000 gallons of water as well as a swimming pool looking device called a port-a-tank. This device allows us to essentially pool water on the scene of fires so the water tender can return to the fire hydrant for another load of water.
