Letter From John Maurer, Hustead Fire Department

Hi Mike, Dirk, Harry and everyone
I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that our new
tanker worked flawlessly on a house fire Sunday morning.
As you can see from the pictures, we had a larger volume of
fire. When we got to the fire our lead engine would not go
in pump gear so we had every hand line off the new truck pulse
a 5" supply line to a ladder truck. We had 2-5"
supply lines coming into the tanker and we moved 50,000 gallons
of water and never ran out. At the peak of the fire, we were
flowing 1,500 GPM and had 9 tankers moving water from the
closest hydrant 4 miles away.
Thanks again for building us such a great truck.
John Maurer and all of us from Hustead Fire Dept.
