Portable Fire Fighting Water Tanks

open top frame dump tankOpen-Top Dump Tanks, also known as Frame Dump Tanks are portable fire fighting water tanks designed for quick setup during wildland fire or forest fire fighting. Tanks are built with a folding frame design that provides quick setup once the tank has arrived in your location. This allows them to be quickly setup in forest areas to store water while fire fighting efforts are underway.

These tanks are made with a folding frame design that allows the units to be easily folded and unfolded. This compact design allows the tanks to be placed in fire trucks and moved quickly to a new location.
