WA Fire & Rescue – MP60 – Acco 2350 Medium Pumper

Service – Fire & Rescue Service of WA
Appliance type – Medium Pumper
Fleet number – MP60
Cab Chassis – International ACCO 2350
Body Builder – South West Fire Units
Registration – 1ALI099

This pumper was part of a build of 6 on ACCO 2350 cab chassis. Most were originally setup as a standard Medium Pumper and later modified to become a Medium Pumper Heavy Rescue for use at major regional stations. The addition of a bullbar and updated signage are key visual signs of the rebuild. This appliance appears to have the midlife rebuild complete without the upgrade to Heavy Rescue

By 2015, this appliance had been replaced at Karratha by a Scania

WA Fire & Rescue – POD Carrier (PCAR1)

Service – Fire & Rescue Service of WA
Appliance type -POD Carrier/Transporter
Fleet number – PCAR1
Cab Chassis – International ACCO
Body Builder –
Registration – 1QAH538

This POD Carrier was first setup with a Hose Layer and Bulk Foam POD. It spent many years sitting dormant at Forrestfield training academy and O’Connor workshops before the POD program was finally activated and it was placed at Malaga Fire Station.

The POD (Platform on Demand) system allows specialist modules to be transported with the modules lifted on or off as needed. It’s a similar concept to a ‘Skip Bin’ that you may have used at your home. This allows multiple specialist resources to be established with fewer trucks needed to transport them, reducing the number of vehicles and crews required. Once a module is delivered, the carrier can continue on to deliver other modules if necessary. Modules can also be left insitu for long periods without the vehicle staying on site.

Modules currently include USAR and Decontamination
