Wanneroo Bush Fire Brigade Vehicles

The Wanneroo Brigade consists of four (4) fire appliances. These are in the form of three (3) Toyota Light Tankers and a 4.4 Rural appliance.

Light Tanker x3

The Light Tanker is a versatile first response appliance designed to allow quick and easy access to fires in many situations. Due to its small size and 4wd capabilities, the Light Tanker can negotiate terrain that larger appliance cannot.

4.4 Rural Tanker

Carrying approximately 4000L, our 4.4 can act as a source of water for our Light Tankers where there are no hydrants. It, as a four wheel drive appliance, is also capable of reaching most areas on the fireground. Thus the 4.4 may provide support to the Light Tankers or may be used to reach the top of trees (achievable due to its high pressure capabilities). Therefore the 4.4 is a valuable appliance in terms of water provision and long reach, large scale fire suppression.
