Folding frame tanks are a quick and economical way to supply water in rural locations for fire fighting efforts. When used as a firefighter drop tank, these units provide quick setup during critical times of need. This frees up storage in water trucks, allowing for trucks to refill and move back to the site.

In addition to the folding frame tank, we also offer an Onion Style Firefighter Drop Tank. These self rising tanks are an alternative option for fast water storage during wildfire fighting.
