UK4aa seems to be very common around firefighters
Although I have another helmet now, my department got Rosenbauer Heros Xtreme recently, very nice helmet. But I kept my UK4aa in my pocket
Cool looking kit, guys.
Same with me Just had the luck to turn 18 when my department decided to purchase new ones. Even though I wouldn´t had a problem with a good old DIN-helmet.
It's mostly designed for bushfirefighting , as you can see people can stand on the back of it while driving and operate branches(hoses) from there.
It's 4X4 and carries chainsaws and handtools plus it has a crew protection spray system.
Tanker 1 carries 2000l and a smaller pump , it's still 4x4 but set up to fit up peoples driveways for housefires
so it carries the breathing gear and all the stuff you need to break into places.
We are surrounded by other volunteer brigades , some of them have tankers and pumpers or just pumpers
so usually if there is a structure fire 2 -3 stations get turned out anyway.
Tanker 1 is on the left.
We just bought this one (Replacing a Ford Ranger)
It carries lighting, small pump, generators , tools and extra radios for striketeam lead duties (Strike team is 5 trucks and the lead vehicle for bushfires)
This is the wildfire gear
