Challenge

The concept behind this design is to create a platform that will allow remote towns or settlements to meet their local community defence needs and also support the smaller brigades in the surrounding districts.

Solution

Carrying 3,000 litres of water and capable of fighting bushfires, grass fires, and building fires; able to carry road crash rescue gear, incident control and support packs and for local aerodrome response, this four-wheel drive fire truck also has a Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS).

Long-Term Impact

The trucks once delivered to the brigades will be supported by the Rural Fire Service Queensland for fuel, maintenance and training, with the local brigade retaining ownership of the vehicle and retaining any funds at the end of the trucks life span.
