The modern fire truck’s of today emerged in the 1960s and were armed with water pumps, a reservoir, and enclosed seats for the crew. Fire engines are equipped with hoses, water, equipment, and personnel that can aggressively fight the fire. The engine can also carry ladders, but unlike a ladder truck they are set up by the fire fighters and can be carried around. Fire engines usually hold 500 to 1000 gallons of water, various types of hoses and a water pump that can usually pump about 1500 gallons per minute.
