Tanker 714 was delivered to the RCFD in the spring of 2009. This tanker replaced two single rear axle tankers, that both had smaller tanks, with a tandem axle unit with a 3000 gallon tank. In addition to delivering a larger load of water with this unit to a fire scene, it also is one less vehicle to maintain, carry insurance on, house in the station, and frees up a firefighter from a drivers seat to perform other fire ground duties. Unit 714 was manufactured by Pierce Manufacturing, and sold by Reliant Fire Apparatus. This tanker is one of three in our fleet, and is second tanker out on calls in our rural area. The pump on this unit is driven off of the trucks transmission, where the pumps on our other tankers are small engine driven. Some of the benefits of this are one less engine to maintain, and better pump discharge pressure control. This style pump also allows the tanker to be used as a back up engine if need be and it carries fittings needed to attach to a hydrant where the other tankers can only pump the water in their on board tanks. We are proud to have this piece of equipment in our fleet.
