Most US fire departments operate separate dedicated foam pumpers, although all Class A pumpers have a limited foam capability.

But Philadelphia has an approach more along the lines of Tokyo. This department operates three of these units, which combine all of the normal capabilities and capacities of a standard triple combination pumper with a fully equipped foam tender.

As such, they can respond in either capacity, and save having dedicated personnel manning a dedicated unit which does not turn out very often...

The other Foam Pumpers like this are at Stations 33 and 60. 33 also has the city's bulk foam unit, which is driven when needed by one of Foam 33's crew members. 60 is a large station, with several other units including an aerial and two hazmat trucks.
