The crew over at Kumeu Volunteer Fire Brigade in N.Z have wrapped up a 2 year project and have produced a pretty amazing looking new addition to their station. Using a Nissan Navara NP300 4x4, they custom designed and constructed what is now known as Kumeu 8629!
Mudgee has gone pink for the month of October to raise awareness for breast cancer and support of the McGrath Foundation. Have a look at these photos of the NSW RFS appliances that have donned the pink livery!

Crews were responded to a 3rd alarm building fire on Newcomen at The Hill. One unit was totally destroyed by fire and several others sustained damage. Some good video of responding appliances responding to this call, too.
Just have a look at this beast of an appliance. Custom designed by a team of people in the Waitakere community and Auckland Rural Fire, WAIT7711 is a force to be reckoned with! Packing a whole range of equipment and abilities, this would be an amazing asset to any fire district.
George Mirage Beotich made his way out to the Agnes Banks fire, north west of Sydney. The fire was heavily resourced from both FRNSW and the NSW RFS and whilst the MCC-A was in attendance, he was able to get some interior and exterior photos!
With a station that houses over 50 operational firefighters and attends over 800 calls a year, Narre Warren from the CFA has just welcomed a brand new appliance. Replacing their old type 3 medium pumper which has served in the station for over 13 years, this new pumper is sure to get a workout. Check out these fantastic photos of their new pride and joy!
Last week we posted a few photos of the prototype Engineering 6B from the NSW Rural Fire Service, it wasn't long before it was put to use in a wildfire. Michael from Media Response Newcastle got these photos of the heavy in action.
This season Cameron Park RFB from the NSW RFS is trialling a Category 6 Bulk Water CAFS tanker. It holds 9000 litres of water and has a remote controlled monitor front monitor, allowing full CAFS operation from inside the cabin. Earlier this week it got out to a local hazard reduction and put some wet stuff on the red stuff.
What started as a group of like minded volunteers, AFI is now an integral part of rescue and emergency services coverage for motorsport events across WA. They have recently increased their capabilities and replaced what was an old "rescue trailer" towed behind an appliance, in favor of a fully decked out Isuzu D Max.
