Fire apparatus has advanced throughout the last centuries to protect, help and save our nation from devouring fires. As the fire threats began to change, so did the models of fire apparatus. The first fire truck was used in the 16th century, but the modern-day fire apparatus emerged in 1906, which was equipped with water tank, hoses and seats for the firefighters. Nowadays, there are more than ten fire truck types, each of them specialized to assist on different fire scenes.
Fire engines for structural fires
The first two types of fire trucks are designed to assist the structural fires and are very common in urban, crowded areas. Type 2 is a little smaller in configuration than type 1, but they both have the same purpose and functionality. The water supply they carry is limited, but they are equipped with suction hoses to take the water from external sources, such as a hydrant, a swimming pool or a lake. Type 2 holds around 400 gallons of water and must have a minimum of 500 Gallons Per Minute of water transfer.
