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...
