Commonly Asked Questions
What’s the best way to compare fire truck models and pricing?
A lot of chiefs come to us with a certain budget, but they’re not sure about the best way to split that budget up. Other times, a chief might know he needs a tanker, but he won’t know which one best fits his needs.
At Fouts Bros we appreciate the opportunity to work closely with Fire Chiefs and other decision makers to help you understand your options.

Why does Fouts Bros. prefer Poly Tanks over steel?
Three reasons: Lighter weight, better performance, and a lifetime warranty.
Poly tanks weigh about 50% less than steel tanks. Which not only gives your truck better performance on steep grades and rough terrain. It also allows you to carry more equipment.
Steel tanks are prone to corrosion. That’s not the case with Poly tanks. In fact, Poly tanks often last for decades with no noticeable decline in condition or performance.
What the difference between CAFS and standard foam injection?
CAFS (Compressed Air Foam System) is a more advanced technology for fighting fire with foam. It makes water up to five times more effective at putting out fires, while improving firefighter safety.
Other important benefits: Increased stream reach, a lighter hose for less fatigue, better heat reduction, fewer rekindles and faster clean up.
We offer Odin CAFS as an available option on all of our units.
