The Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department is pleased to announce the arrival of the new Tanker 5 to the community that we serve. The unit was designed and built to efficiently and safely deliver firefighting water to Dunkirk and the surrounding communities.
Tanker 5 is a 2018 Mack Granite / 4 Guys Tanker. In the interest of safety, the vehicle features a Mack MHD reinforced cab, Rolltek Supplemental Restraint System, and Rosco Drive Camera System. The vehicle features a modified tank design and advanced suspension which lowers the overall center of gravity by ten inches. It is equipped with a 1250 GPM pump and 3000 gallon tank.
The Dunkirk Volunteers are actively training on the new vehicle and will place the unit in service on May 19, 2019
