THE fire tender shown in fig. 1 is the prototype of a self‐contained mobile unit made recently by the Pyrene Company. Mounted on a Bedford QL 4x4 chassis, the body houses mechanical foam generating equipment capable of producing 2,500 gals./min. In addition there is a CO2 gas installation which can discharge 300 lb. in 1½ mins. With a crew of five, the driver remains in the truck to operate the regulators, while two men run out the foam hoses from the front and two take the CO2 hoses from the rear. The whole design has been made with a view to the most rapid concentration of foam and gas.
