Support Apparatus
These vehicles typically remain unstaffed.  But during certain types of emergencies, even inclement weather, these are placed in service with on duty firefighters from front line apparatus.

Tankers in the Charlotte Fire Department may look like Engine companies, but they're actually designed to be support apparatus.  They can double as Engine Companies, and carry 1000 gallons of water and 300 gallons of foam.
