This is the first of a new series of Urban Pumpers to serve in WA. It is a continuation of the designs used in recent years for Medium and Heavy Pumpers.

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.”

This build was completed by South West Fire in Collie and delivered new to Midland Fire Station.
