identified as being used by the CFS, gets to where it needs to go, can communicate with CFS, and can connect hoses to CFS appliances.

The Tanker pack comes in a two bags, and includes reflective "CFS
Tanker" signs to place on the front and rear of the vehicle, CFS map books, CFS radios (VHF and GRN), coupling adapters and reflective safety vests.
