Landmark Isuzu Fire Prototype Wows AFAC

Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL), Australia’s truck market leader, has wrapped-up another strong showing at the 2016 Australasian Fire and Emergency Services Authorities Council (AFAC) conference and exhibition.

This year’s event in Brisbane saw Isuzu Trucks join forces with the Isuzu Engines team to deliver the largest and most comprehensive exhibit to date.

Isuzu’s long association with AFAC has gone from strength-to-strength in recent years, particularly off the back of the growing reputation of Isuzu’s off-highway offering within the emergency services sector.

Taking pride of place on the Brisbane stand this year was a landmark prototype Isuzu FTS 139-260 4×4, equipped by Bell Environmental with a four cylinder, direct injection 4LE2PW10 water-cooled ancillary engine and coupled with a GAAM MK 300 pumpset.

Generating plenty of interest in Brisbane, the prototype is the outcome of a unique collaboration with Isuzu and Bell Environmental, who specialise in emergency services safety equipment and custom engineered solutions.

IAL’s Engines Manager, Dean Whitford, said working in tandem with Bell on the FTS project was an excellent learning experience and continues to position Isuzu’s off-highway offering favourably within the emergency sector.

“Our association with Bell Environmental on this project is the result of a lot of hard work behind the scenes in continuing to reveal exactly what our product range is capable of,” Mr Whitford said.

“The annual AFAC event and exhibit is arguably the most important date on our calendar in terms of showcasing the range, and we’ve seen a solid take-up across this sector in recent times. It’s been really encouraging to see.”
