Tanker 2

Description: IMG_0008.JPGIt is a four wheel drive, 6 speed manual, medium tanker built on a Hino truck purposely modified in Australia for Australian fire fighting conditions and can carry a crew of 5. It is fitted with a reversing camera.

Water capacity is 2350 litres of which 650 is set aside for crew protection – 1700 litres for fire fighting.

Water is delivered through two on-board diesel pumps, one of which is high pressure, used mainly for blacking out (wetting down burnt areas). Fire fighting foam is available through either pump.

The truck is equipped with a remote monitor (water cannon) mounted on the front bullbar, this monitor is controlled by a joy stick situated beside the front passenger seat.

The truck has a deluge system, which in an emergency, with the operation of one lever, sprays water through permanently mounted spray heads over the complete truck. The cab windows all have permanent roll down reflective screens and a heavy woollen blanket is provided for each crew member. It also has a crew protection curtain that folds down on the rear of the cab to protect any crew compromised outside.

The tanker is equipped with two sets of breathing apparatus and also carries equipment such as a chainsaw, hand tools and other general fire-fighting equipment
