New $400,000 fire engine for Narrabri

Published: 10th September 2010

The fire and emergency protection of residents and businesses in Narrabri has been boosted with the delivery of a new $400,000 fire engine to local firefighters, Barwon MLC”, Christine Robertson, said today.

“The Keneally Government is continuing to provide our firefighters with modern and safe vehicles for their vital work to protect NSW families,” Ms Robertson said.

“This new vehicle, which was delivered to Narrabri Fire Station this month, is part of the largest roll-out of new and upgraded fire engines in the NSW Fire Brigades’ history.

“The Narrabri firefighters do an extraordinary job in protecting their community and this new fire tanker will help them perform even more effectively.”

“This multi-purpose vehicle’s features include four-wheel drive for fires in difficult terrain and a water protection system operated from the cabin to help ensure the safety of the crew.”

Minister for Emergency Services, Steve Whan, said the specialist vehicle had been designed and built for responding to a range of emergencies including building, bush and grass fires, road accidents and chemical spills.

“These new tankers can be configured as a standard tanker or a hazardous materials or rescue unit to improve our firefighters’ capacity to respond to all types of emergencies,” Mr Whan said.

“The Government’s record $972 million 2010/11 emergency services budget included $637 million for the NSWFB, providing $18 million to continue updating its fleet with more than 35 new fire engines and specialised vehicles.

“It can pump 1900 litres of water a minute from its tank, which carries up to 2700 litres of water and can also operate from hydrants. It is also equipped with special fire fighting foam and meets strict emission standards.”

NSWFB Commissioner Greg Mullins said the new vehicle would enhance the response capability of firefighters in the Narrabri district.

“The 19 firefighters stationed at Narrabri Fire Station responded to 139 emergency calls in 2009/10 and were also actively involved in educating the community about fire safety throughout the year.

“Fleet upgrades such as this ensure that our firefighters have the best equipment and the latest technology to ensure the safety and protection of local communities,” Commissioner Mullins said.

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
