  1. Can this truck not go to a community that doesn’t have a truck? Just give it to the community. I have read about fires going uncontrolled because of lack of such a thing…… in Canada?

    1. Hi Margot.

      It’s a good question. This truck has no capacity for carrying water and does not have a pump on it. This makes it unusable as a bush truck for forest fires without extensive modifications.
