Fire Engines Pictures In Your Area

Mon Jan 23, 2006 11:50 am

My Local Fire Station, Station 31 is served by 4 Fire Vehicles:
2x 1998 Scanias P94DBs heavy rescues. First Pump truck 311 and Rescue Pump truck 317
1x 1985 Dennis heavy rescue second pump, truck 312
1x 2005 Mazda Bounty 4WD ute, vehicle 3110.

Station 31 also has two relief heavy rescue fire trucks based there. If one of the nearby fire stations has one of its fire trucks away for servicing then one of the relief trucks will go to that station. These two trucks are
1x 1993 Mitsubishi FP270J Heavy Rescue
1x 1987 Mitsubishi Heavy Rescue


The New Zealand Fire Service codes their vehicle like this, the first 2 digits is the station number, so my local station is station 31. The first response truck is code 1, so vehicle 311 is the first response truck. The Rescue truck is code 7, so Rescue truck is 317, second response truck is code 2, so 312. The 2nd repsonse truck is only used if it needs to be, so its the back up truck to the first truck and the rescue truck. Vehicle 3110 is the support vehicle. This ute is used as a transport vehicle and also tows the monsoon bucket to and from scrub fires

Station 35 is also my other local station. Station 35 served by:
1x 1988 International 1850D heavy rescue, vehicle 351
