Rural Response Pump (RRP)
The Rural Response Pumps have been designed to give crews an alternative choice of vehicle where conditions require 4x4 facilities due to difficult or restricted access.
The vehicles are fully equipped for use at domestic fires. They contain a waterous pump supplying one hose reel and an Akron branch for compartment fires. They also carry the Lukas e-Draulic battery powered rescue equipment.
The RRPs also have Ultra High Pressure pumps fitted to provide an enhanced wildfire fighting capability and to make the most efficient use of the 450lt water tank. Each Pump has a foam capability.
They can carry up to five persons with four Breathing Apparatus sets on board. The RRPs are based throughout our rural areas across all six commands.
