As far I can't really confirm nor deny any "rumors" that may be out there. All that can really be said is that the brigade has established a working party that is meeting regulary with state & regional staff to discuss various pro's / con's in various different appliances to try and find some outcomes for heavy urban interface areas. This has involved assessment of vehicles & techniques such as the "type 2" and others. There is currently no spec's written, nothing is "signed off", no chassis have been ordered / delivered or build for the brigade and the process is ongoing. There is currently no financial agreement in place either. Am happy to keep people posted when something does happen but at this stage there really isn't anything to be talking about, sorry!

well it was my grandfather who told me and the only truck he would recognize is BP mainly because it is a Volvo so if HVP was a Volvo then it he may have been confused.

Happy Pumper was a Hino.... it was most likely the old Belair Pumper that was a Volvo and has most recently spent time at Murray Bridge until their type 2 arrived.

There is nothing wrong with a type 2 and I can't understand why burnside knocked it back,there call rate has dropped over the years and they don't do many COQ as much as they did. They should have taken the type 2 and be done with it......... If CFS give them what they really want a MFS pumper then we again will have different type pumpers when at last we are starting to see standard pumpers come into this service.. may be there station is way to small for all that they have...

Do we build an applinace for the risks we (CFS) face, to for the risks others face???

CFS will undoubtedly turn this into a complete joke and make a laughing stock of any process they may have the states other 464 brigades following.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to control it.

Kind of makes me laugh when people worry about what Burnside get as a new Pump. If they got extra cash that they can use fine as long as it does not cause the CFS to pay out more in maintenance on the thing down the track.

In saying that though they are by no means the busiest brigade with any extra special risks, so why do they need to be special.

In my opinion, attitudes like that are the reason the CFS has the problems with the fleet that it does. If brigades like Burnside hadn't stood up for themselves and asked for decent equipment and appliances, we'd still be fighting fires with Hessian sacks on horseback.

I don't think its that drastic tell me one reason why Burnside need a better pumper than anyone else?

Whats wrong with the current Pumpers CFS are bringing out and in what area's are they lacking to what Burnside think that they need?

Just give them  them a type 2 pumper as this is the path that cfs have taken in gettng pumpers out into brigade's that need that type of appliances. burnside brigade are no differant than any other urban brigade in region one or region 5 there call rate has dropped down and they dont do a lot of large jobs like they used to. They should be happy with a type 2 as I know a number of brigade's who have now got a CFS type 2 pumper are thrilled with their new pumper. So does anyone really know why they dont want a type 2??..

If they have that much money to buy their own appliances well let them but who will own the appliances it will not be the brigade but the CFS...
