The introduction of tank truck equipment has revolutionized fire fighting in California. The state forestry department operates 36 motorized pump units and, including county-owned and Forest Service trucks, more than 200 are now in use in the state. They have been found indispensable in fighting grain, grass, brush and forest fires wherever they could reach the fire. The author gives a historical survey of forest fire tank truck development and describes the equipment now considered standard.
