Oxford Volunteer Fire Brigade - Appliance plan

Harwood Wilson made this Official Information request to Fire and Emergency New Zealand

The request was partially successful.

From: Harwood Wilson

Dear Fire and Emergency New Zealand,

Recently FENZ removed the aging 1984 Isuzu Tanker (OXFO7911 / LX 6520) and the 1993 Mitsubishi Second Pump (OXFO792 / SI7982) from Oxford Volunteer Fire Brigade.

In place of these trucks, I believe a new Isuzu 4x4 Pumper/Tanker is now responding as OXFO792, reducing the brigade from 3 trucks to 2 trucks.

Can you confirm the following:

1. What is the reason for the present reduction in appliances?

2. Are there any plans to add a higher capacity tanker or further appliances to Oxford?

3. Will a tanker call sign still respond to the Oxford area on initial turnout?

4. Is FENZ confident is has sufficient fire tanker water supply readily available to rural fires in the non reticulated areas of oxford?

Yours faithfully,

Harwood Wilson
