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.
Modelled off the NSW RFS equivalent, the CFA has two new “Ultra Heavy Tanker’s” out and doing the rounds in the field. This vehichle has a 9,000-litre water tank with a 1,000lpm pump and some interesting additions for the CFA.
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!
With the use of multiple smoke machines, a disused hardware store and a LPG fire prop – this drill involved Kyneton Fire Brigade, Carlsruhe Fire Brigade CFA & Malmsbury Fire Brigade which were “responded” to reports of smoke issuing from the recently closed Turners Hardware store. Great photos, too!

Keysborough Fire Brigade from the CFA undertook some great scenario drills recently with their adjoining station Springvale CFA – bringing with it some equally great photography! Looked like a really good hands on session, even with a firefighter down drill thrown in for good measure. Check it out.
We had a chat with the guys from Nar Nar Goon CFA station about their role in the local community. They are a volunteer station and run a “pumper/tanker” which is an old tanker retrofitted to act as a pumper and a rescue appliance. They attend around 300+ calls a year, half of that being rescue incidents.
