WA Fire & Rescue – SET (SM02/ST02)

Service – Fire & Rescue Service of WA
Appliance type – Specialised Equipment Tender
Fleet number – SM02/ST02
Cab Chassis – Scania
Body Builder –
Registration – 1QAM234
Stationed at Osborne Park

The Specialised Equipment Tender is designed to provide additional specialist equipment to supplement the equipment carried on pumper appliances. The role is typical of those fulfilled by a Hazmat or Breathing Apparatus support appliance in other services. Indeed the most common response for these appliances is to support urban incidents with Breathing Apparatus resources including spare cylinders and servicing.

This current model is a semi-detachable unit, based on a Scania cab-chassis with a rear body module which can be removed for servicing or transfer of the module to another vehicle if necessary. Note that this varies from the POD concept where the module is delivered on a slide on-slide off transporter system.

A large retractable awning on the kerbside provides shelter for operations and a ramp at the rear provides a loading/unloading point for equipment in addition to a door on the side. Some equipment is stored in external lockers, such as spare BA cylinders, with most equipment stored in racking inside the rear module. At the front of the rear module is a small command & control area equipped with communications equipment and workstations for management of incidents.

SM02/ST02 was a replacement for the original SET stationed at Osborne Park. It’s an identical appliance to Murdoch’s SET. Osborne Park SET mainly services the north of Perth with Murdoch’s covering south.

SM01/ST01 was an incremental appliance brought online at the new Murdoch Fire Station, providing a resource south of the river. This reduced the reliance on the existing SET, stationed at Perth and then Osborne Park Stations, and allows that resource to focus more of the north of Perth.
