Hastings receives new Pumper
Category : Brigade News
On May 30, Hastings Fire Brigade commenced using a new fire fighting appliance. A modern Scania Mid Mount pumper was delivered to the station in early April to replace the Isuzu pumper. Crews commenced a training procedure immediately.
For the next six weeks extensive driving and operational training drills were conducted to have the vehicle and crews ready to operate it in an efficient and effective manner when placed into service.
The truck is rated to pump 4000 litres of water per minute and will be an asset for the protection of both Hastings and the surrounding communities.
