Tanker 35 was made possible by the support of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant through FEMA along with our municipal partners from West Brandywine and West Caln Townships. Special thanks to the truck committee who tirelessly worked to make this project come to completion, as well as Summit and Fire Line who have been more than helpful along the way in this process. Also we cannot forget to thank our grant writer John Sly for his work on helping us obtain this valuable piece of equipment
Tanker 35 greatly improves our firefighting capabilities providing that needed water supply on the fire or incident scenes.
