WAJAX testing

WAJAX testing
Wildfire and forestfire pump, able to be carried easily by one person, weighs about 45kg, nifty little bit of gear, used in remote areas. We are one of the few trucks in Auckland to carry portable pumps, because our urban area backs onto the Waitakere Ranges, so we get a lot of forest fires as well as urban fires.

We test all the gear on the truck quite often, it would not look too good if we turned out to an emergency and something didn't work. At the start of every shift the truck gets checked over, and once a week we thoroughly check everything works.
