CAMP WILLIAMS -- The Utah National Guard unveiled its new water tender Monday. The water tender is a field mobile water-storage container to help the Guard's fire fighting program at Camp Williams.

"We had an old tender that was just being held together with baling wire and duct tape. This is giving us a modern piece of equipment to help us fight fires at Camp Williams," said Col. Bob Dutton, Garrison Commander at Camp Williams.

The new tender can hold up to 3,000 gallons of water and will be used to transport water to a fire and fill up smaller tankers.

The tender cost about $225,000 and used a major portion of the base's fire budget.
