Corrugated tanks are another cost-effective, durable emergency water storage tank.

Skid sprayers offer hose reels and nozzles for targeted spraying. Water trailers are great for water storage for fire fighting, potable water storage, and remote water storage for livestock.
Usage and Deployment of Temporary Folding Frame Tanks
Fire responders often use folding frame tanks for emergency water storage in remote locations. Folding frame tanks feature an interior liner held up by a rigid outer frame. The frame is welded with steel or aluminum and can be quickly unfolded for easy setup and teardown. Typically, the folding frame tank can be quickly setup by two trained fire responders. Practicing the setup for this folding frame tank will be essential.
Before setting up the folding frame tank, you will want to make sure the ground is free of debris and sharp objects—anything that could pierce or damage the tank. Set up the tank on a flat, non-sloping surface. Folding frame tanks will primarily be used in rural areas where access to fire hydrants and other water sources are limited. Gallon capacity of folding frames tanks range from 500 to 5,000 gallons, depending on your application needs.
Benefits of Emergency Foldable Water Tank
The folding frame tank is both rigid and flexible. Rigid when in use for emergency water storage and flexible when it comes time to setup it up, tear it down, and store it. The folding frame tank folds flat for convenient storage, has an open top for easy access, and will support a large volume of liquid when you need it most.
