Narre Warren North Fire Brigade are now testing our brand new Heavy Tanker.
The new Heavy Tanker is based on the new standard for the CFA as seen in the attached photos and several are being built to replace some of the aging Tankers in the District.
The main features of this vehicle are: 15T Iveco Eurocargo 4x4 crew cab chassis with Allison automatic, 4,000-litre water tank, 200 litres/minute water pump, Class A foam capability, Full stowage inventory, 0-450 litres/minute front-mounted monitor with joystick control inside the cabin.
The new dual cab appliance brings Narre Warren North FB into the next era of fire fighting response in bush and grasslands along with its support and water haulage capabilities in strike teams. It will also allow the brigade to tackle incidents that Narre Warren North and the surrounding suburbs and areas such as Lysterfield Park see due to the Rural-Urban interface that we manage. We look forward to using the long awaited arrival. Keep an eye out for the tanker going Live in the next couple months.
