Drop Tank for Fire Fighting Efforts

firefighter drop tankThe firefighter drop tank is a portable folding frame tank designed to assist with rural firefighting or emergency response in remote locations. Built with a folding frame design, these frame tanks can be compactly folded up and moved to needed locations during times of need. Once on site, firefighter drop tanks can be quickly deployed to store fire suppression water from fire trucks, dump trucks or water trucks.

Folding frame tanks for fire fighters are built in several different sizes typically ranging from 500 to 5,000 gallons. These fire water storage tanks can be made from either a steel or aluminum frame that folds for easy transportation and fast deployment once at the scene of the fire.
