We found out about a CFA firie who is funding her own way to New York to climb the World Trade Center at the 5th Annual New York City Memorial Climb – meet Gabby Keats!
Following on from our previous post regarding the large factory fire in Kilsyth VIC, we have the dispatch and operations radio recordings available.
If you haven’t seen the footage, watch the clip below before the audio. If the sounds of the gas cylinders in the video weren’t terrifying enough, wait until you hear the first arriving appliance!
Don’t miss the video in this one!
On October 13th CFA and MFB stations responded to reports of a factory fire – going well. The premises known as HyChill produced air-conditioning gas and reportedly had anywhere from 100-300 gas cylinders in the factory.
Replacing a 25 year old pumper, Red Cliffs CFA station has taken delivery of a brand new Scania which brings with it a host of advancements for the station.
The new pumper is the first of 3 new appliances built by the CFS, which shares the same same design as the new CFA medium pumpers – just built on the Isuzu cab chassis. Aldinga Beach Pumper is the first one to make it out to a station and by all accounts, it’s fantastic.
This is primarily a structural firefighting appliance with 4x CABA sets (including extra cylinders) all the hoses (38mm & 64mm Duraline hose), variable flow fog nozzles, the usual entry tools, and salvage equipment including a positive pressure ventilation fan. It also has a Elkhart model 8297 monitor on top for great asset protection when needed.
