Our fire fighting water tanks come with several options for liner fabric and the custom construction of the folding frame tank. With all these customizations, you'll be sure to find the fire fighting water tank solution you are looking for for your application. For details, see Folding Frame Tank.
Fire Fighting Solutions for Home and Business
Folding Frame Tanks offer first responders quick access to water during times of fire. In rural locations, folding frame tanks supply water where it is often difficult to come by. The fire fighting water tanks are a portable solution and are designed to assist in remote fire fighting and other emergency response situations.
Made with a compact, folding frame design, frame tanks can be compactly folded and moved to needed locations. Once in location, fire fighting tanks can be quickly deployed to capture water from fire trucks, dump trucks, or water trucks.

Other Fire Fighting Solutions
While folding frame fire fighting tanks are excellent reliable water sources for first responders, they are not the only means of fire suppression. We carry a multitude of fire fighting tools that can help first responders.
Water trailers and water skid sprayers provide excellent water pressure and fire suppression capabilities. Fire suppression water skids can be placed in the back of UTVs and ATVs to go into rural and remote places. With fire hoses, boom sprayers, hose reels, pumps and engines, you can experience incredible water pressure and power to fight fires.
Fire gel is a super polymer, gel-based spray that is used to coat the outside of buildings to act as a fire retardant when wildfires and forest fires threatened. The great thing about Fire Gel is it absorbs a great amount of water and is ultra effective against flames and active fires. However, for it to live up to its full potential, it must be kept wet and misted regularly.
Whether you're looking for tanks, sprayers, skids, or folding frame tanks, we have a huge variety of large and small fire suppression solutions for your water storage needs. Find out more about all of our firefighting options at Fire Suppression Products (PDF).
Watch Fire Gel Work
Water Strainers are a great accessory and resource for first responders and operators who need access to clean water. In local bodies of water muck, sand, dirt and debris can interrupt the flow of water and damage equipment. However, with our supply of water strainers, you will be able to find the accessory that best fits your water tank and equipment.
While folding tanks are compact, easy to set up and provide reliable and abundant water, there's one thing they can't do: fly. That's where the multifunction helicopter tank comes in. The pyramid-shaped blivet water tank is made from heavy duty vinyl and is easily transportable by helicopter or truck. Get up to 600 gallons of emergency water storage.
