QFRS TEM Central Hazard Mitigation Unit

Postby D1cko » Sat Jun 25, 2011 3:46 pm

Now these aren't really rural appliances anymore but they were until a few weeks ago. They were purchased by TEM Central for the Hazard Mitigation Unit.  The quick version of the story is they are a branch of QFRS but are run as a private company to make a profit. One contract which they have won is to do the burns at shoalwater bay training area. I was lucky enough to be on the burn team for the last 3 weeks. Now I'm getting a bit off topic here so here are the pictures

This trailer holds all the food, fold up chairs and stretchers, cooking gear chain saws, blowers, brush cutters, and a polaris quad.

There is also a fuel trailer which carries 410L of drip torch fuel, 410L Diesel, 60L of petrol and 40L of 2 Stoke fuel.

On the last trip we had 234 Yanky, and 1 hilux 41 and 2 mazda 51s. The TEM Central fleet will also be receiving a Canter 51 and a Mitsubishi 61 in the next few weeks.

Once they are given their designated call signs and new livery (they will remain yellow), I will post them in their own thread with callsign and fleet details.

Interesting, thanks for sharing. The burns team down here just recently received Lamb Island 41. It is the only rural appliance to be used. All the others are Urbans (4WD Echo's - which are actually called yankees).

Such as this appliance.

Drove the old Hattonvale Summerholm 51 last week on our deployment to Rockhampton, apart from lack of speed it drove pretty well.

Before they came up they had to be registered so the workshop down south went rite over the
And put all new suspension under them. There isn't much lug room in them either. Did you get much action on the deployment?

It's going back a while but I'm 99% sure at that time it was 234Y. It was the iZone officers "personal" car.
