#FunFactFriday Is there a difference between a fire engine and a fire truck?
Yes, there is. A fire engine has hoses, a water tank, a pump (to pump water) to extinguish a fire, and a small assortment of ladders and equipment.
A fire truck usually does not have a pump, hose or water tank, and instead features a tall ladder fixed to the truck that extends over 100 feet. Fire trucks also carry an assortment of ground ladders and other fire suppression devices such as the Jaws of Life. Most often, the public is referring to a "Hook and Ladder" fire truck that has a tiller-man who steers at the rear trailer section of the ladder.
