Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tanker trucks, also known as tenders, are used by more than 65% of all fire departments across America. Early tankers were converted from oil, fuel, milk, or chemical tank trucks. Some of these converted units were semi or tractor-trailer trucks, others were smaller, local oil or milk delivery trucks. Large fire apparatus manufacturers started to manufacture water tanker fire trucks in the late 1950s, but it wasn't until the 1970s that custom-made water tankers became popular. Shown are tankers by all the major and minor fire apparatus manufacturers and regional builders, among conversions built by local shops. Included are tankers from Mack, Ford, GMC, Chevy, International, White, Brockway, Diamond T and Reo, Autocar, Kenworth, Peterbuilt, Freightliner, Volvo, UD, Marmom, Western Star, Crane Carrier Corp., FWD, Oshkosh, AMC, and others.

About the Author

John Rieth has been taking photos of fire trucks since he was 9 years old, after his father got him hooked. He went on to receive an Associate Degree in Fire Science and a Bachelor of Fire Service Management. Today he is an Observer for the Forest Fire Service of New Jersey and an active member of several volunteer fire departments. John has contributed to many of the fire apparatus magazine articles, as well as pictures ad information for many books on fire apparatus, and has authored a few of his own through Iconografix.
