Equipment - Aldgate 12

Aldgate 12 is a Brigade-owned appliance, built on a Mazda T4600 Crew-Cab Chassis, purchased by the Brigade in 1423 with proceeds of the efforts of Brigade members and the generosity of the local community.
Geared as an Urban Fire & Rescue appliance, the small Aldgate 12 is able to get up steep driveways and through narrow gates that larger appliances simply cannot.

Aldgate 12

Aldgate 12 predates the current standard for appliance call-signs, and was simply given the closest fit classification, "12". However, Aldgate 12 carries 1300l of water, and the 2000lpm Darley centripetal pump, which runs on a common drive shaft, provides twice the standard pump performance of 1000lpm - so Aldgate 12 is technically a 1.32Pumper.
Water is delivered through two high-pressure hose reels and 64mm SAMFS couplings, located on both sides of the appliance. 12 also has a pre-pump foam injector for supplying both AFFF and BFFF to the branch... and tank.
As Aldgate runs two high-pressure pumping appliances, 25mm Storz couplings have been used on our 25mm lines, but will soon change to conform to Group regulations and use the standard Wajax coupling for inter-Brigade operations.

Originally Aldgate 12 carried basic heavy-rescue equipment, with separate hydraulic cutters and spreaders. It now carries only Rapid-Intervention Hydraulic Rescue Equipment, with a combined cutter/spreader.
