This is part of the State Mutual Aid program through the State Fire Marshals Office. Allocating Tankers to Memphis and Shelby County. They are having huge water issues.

Do you know what the issue is? Just curious.

This was the first time in known memory that Memphis engine companies drafted water from a portable tank to fight a working fire.

As a former owner of a Memphis 1950 Mack 1250 gpm sedan pumper (Engine 4) with a Hall-Scott engine, no muffler, and a shop built deck gun, it sounds to me like they need to bring back the squirrel-tail hard suction.
