ACT Rural Fire Service RIV 21

Postby TP 3000 » Fri Jul 24, 2009 12:08 am

As of Thursday 23 July 2009 ACT Rural Fire Service Light Tanker RIV 21 was decommissioned. This light tanker belonged to Rivers Volunteer Bushfire Brigade. It is due to be replaced with a Medium Rigid Tanker sometime in August. RIV 21 is currently out at the ACT Rural Fire Service headquarters at Fairbairn Park.

Here is a picture of RIV 21 at Rivers Volunteer Bushfire Brigade Station

I am not sure who is building the new vechile, but if a ATDB Member is a part of this maybe we could get a sneak peak.

I wonder if the ACT Rural Fire Service will get a new Isuzu medium rigid truck as a replacement for RIV 21? We will soon know the make of truck when the ACT Rural Fire Service take delivery of the new medium rigid tanker soon.

Rivers should be getting theirs August 7. But all I know is that the order was added to another states order.

8 new medium tankers will be handed over to the ACT RFS on Wednesday morning. The media will be there doing there thing & I'll hopefully be there as well & grab a few shots.

It is a private location so only special people are invited.

You'll fit right in then......

I am going to guess anything modified by Varley. Good to see some new equipment being purchased for the RFS and also the ACT FB.
