Some fire apparatus serve multiple purposes. Most of these can pump water and move at the same time. These have medium volume pumps in the 300-500 gallon range in most instances. They carry supply hose appropriate to the pump capacity. Some have very specialized systems, such as Compressed Air Foam delivery systems. In the Snyder Fire Department operation, these trucks are used for vehicle fires, cotton fires, hay fires, trash, grass, brush, petroleum, and a multitude of different types of fires, including structure fires outside the fire hydrant area.
