UAE Gifts Seven Bulk Water Fire Tankers to Australia


The Government of the United Arab Emirates has generously gifted seven Category 13 Bulk Water Carriers to Australia after witnessing the unprecedented fire devastation in 2019/2020.

The seven fire tankers are valued over $3.4 million and will be disbursed across NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS), ACT Emergency Services Agency (ACT ESA), Western Australia Department of Fire and Emergency Services (WA DFES), and Country Fire Authority Victoria (VIC CFA).


The official handover of the vehicles from the UAE Ambassador, H.E. Abdulla Al Subousi to the NSW Minister for Police and Emergency Services, David Elliott will be held at the Varley Tomago facilities where the vehicles have been manufactured.

The United Arab Emirates have a strong and long history of friendship with Australia and felt the need do their part to support the Australian fire-fighting efforts. After discussions with Emergency Management Australia the United Arab Emirates decided the appropriate support was to gift the new fire trucks to various Emergency Agencies across some of the harshest fire affected areas of Australia.


Varley Vehicles, part of the Varley Group had the honour and privilege in being selected to build the fire tankers. Varley are Australia’s largest and privately owned fire and emergency vehicle manufacturer.
