Sandwich FD utilized the 1973 GMC 7500 chassis of their old Tanker 1
to build a unique Foam Tanker. The new tanker has a 1500 gallon poly foam
tank that will carry 1% Class B ATC foam. The tanker must be fed by an outside
water supply and has (4) 5" intakes on the rear. The reason for the 5" intakes is
a huge 3,000 gpm foam deluge gun mounted on the left rear of the truck. The
deckgun can throw a stream of foam 325 feet. The tanker is expected to go into
service soon and will be stationed in East Sandwich Station 2.
