The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Sydney Show Grounds Fire Station Australia
Fire engines attached to the Fire Station at the Royal Easter Show, Homebush Olympic Park, Sydney Australia. International 1800 pumper registered number FBY 123 from the service fleet pool. Suzuki Sierra 4 wheel drive registered number FBY 336. The Fire Station is crewed by career and retained (part-time) fire personnel. The Suzuki is ideal for moving through the heavy crowds. The Brigade responds on an average to several calls per day ranging from fuel spills to cooking fat fires at the various food outlets. The personnel continuously patrol the massive grounds on foot and are in contact with the Fire Station and pumps by portable radio and mobile phone.
