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.”

Fleet number – HRT1
Cab Chassis – Austral Firepac

HRT1 was the only Austral Firepac used by fire services in WA. It was used for major road crash and other rescues, as well as attending large structure fires.

WA Fire & Rescue transitioned to a decentralised approach, with Heavy Rescue roles being primarily performed by Pumpers equipped with additional rescue equipment. The Pumpers are known as ‘Medium Pumper – Heavy Rescue’, with Heavy Rescue signage above the lockers of the rear body.
