New CFA truck washing system?

CFA Truck in heavy rain

You would be forgiven if that’s your first thought . . .

It is a crew protection spray system used when the truck and crew are in danger during a burnover

Crews are protected by roll down heat reflector blinds together with crouching down below window level under woollen blankets and sprays working over the truck.

The truck and crew go into a mayday situation advising by radio their situation, GPS co-ordinates and how many crew. The truck also has an aerial appliance number which can be spotted from the air.

The lack of crew indicates they are safely in the cabin in this pre-summer burn-over drill.
