Their website reads:

1983 Isuzu Tanker—built in 1992
This truck is an example of the first fire units that the State Government subsidised for Bush Fire Brigades. Commencing its life as a Westrail gang truck, it was purchased by the Bush Fires Board and sent to Bell Fire to be converted into a bush fire tanker. Designed with “off the shelf” parts for easy repairs out in the field, the vehicle carries 2700 litres of water and has a Stalker semi hi lift pump powered by a Holden motor. Stationed originally with the Dunsborough Bush Fire Brigade near Busselton, it was later used by the Kirup Bush Fire Brigade until 2007.
