WA Fire & Rescue – UT79 – Hino 2.4 Urban Tanker

Service – Fire & Rescue Service of WA
Appliance type – Urban Tanker
Fleet number – UT79
Cab Chassis – Hino
Body Builder – South West Fire Units
Registration – 1QBE142

UT79 was the first of a new version of the Urban Tanker for Career stations, to replace the aging Medium Tanker builds. It was based on existing 2.4 and 3.4 designs with additional modifications in consultation with firefighters due to the unique role that these tankers perform. The metro career Urban Tankers are staffed by 2 firefighters and have a key role in attacking bush fires in the metro area working with Pumpers and Light Tankers. Features such as a rear deck with monitor mounts, pump controls and communications to the driver as well as a ‘dead reel’ enable the crew of 2 to work efficiently.

The photographs captured were taken during a familiarisation session with firefighters before the appliance was assigned to a station.
