Mortdale Fire Station in Sydney took delivery of their brand new IVECO Type 2 CAFS pumper this week and we’ve got the photos and specs to look over! Check out the brand spanking new CP48!
The pumper is the first of its kind and has been specially designed to provide firefighting, rescue and HAZMAT capabilities both on and off-road.
We’ve got the scoop, excuse the pun, on a recent addition to the Fire & Rescue training academy. It doesn’t have a callsign or entry in the FRNSW CAD system, but as the academy told us – it’s “prepared for anything”.
With CAFS capabilities, a fireproof deployable awning and the ability to run air-powered tools, this heavy CAFS tanker is certainly impressive!
The two Kalgoorlie based vehicles – an urban pump and a District Officer’s vehicle – are decorated with images of natural flora and fauna of Wongatha Country – something local Aboriginal people can identify with instantly.
The boat is rated for 8 firefighters at any one time and boasts an impressive arsenal of firefighting and water-based capabilities – including sonar, FLIR, Dopler radar and drone inputs.
