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 – UP05HR – Scania Urban Pumper Heavy Rescue

Service – Fire & Rescue Service of WA
Appliance type – Urban Pumper
Fleet number – UP05
Cab Chassis – Scania P310
Body Builder –
Registration – 1QBP374

This Urban Pumper replaced an Acco 2350 based Medium Pumper at Bunbury station.

DFES states: “UP Series appliance design is a continuous improvement upgrade to the Heavy Pump appliance series first commissioned in 2008.
The UP series development process incorporates the commissioning by Fleet and Equipment Services of FESA generated drawings and specifications, proto type manufacture under direction, and full scale manufacturing. This process was adapted in recognition of the variations experienced across the preceding MP and HP series where the contracted manufacturer directed the appliance build process. The process provides for standardisation across the series irrespective of manufacturers (provided capability has been demonstrated) and has resulted in reduced delivery timelines.”
