Right now, Tanker 3 is out of service for a few improvements. While at Patriot Fire, It will be getting a new Darley pump, Jacobs Engine/Exhaust Brake, and a new customized front bumper with a preconnect trash line. In addition to the Brush truck, this is the second project funded by the generous donation given to the GVFC earlier this year. While the tanker is out of service, The Engine will be first due on all structure fires instead of Rescue Pumper 3. The tanker should be back just in time to test everything out with the new Pierce Engine 3!
