Tank truck fire apparatus has been a most important contribution to the fire fighting equipment used in southern California, and has given to the local forest protection agencies one of their greatest weapons. Doubtless this type of apparatus will in time be used more widely throughout the country, but its general adoption will depend largely upon the kind of equipment placed on the market by the fire apparatus manufacturers. Until it is possible for forest protection agencies to purchase apparatus of standard and approved model, it will be necessary for them to prepare their own designs. By interchange of ideas and recommendations based on actual experience, better equipment can be produced. The author requests suggestions for consideration in future designs.
