In 2002 the Brunei Fire and Rescue Department purchase 2 (i think maybe 1) Volvo FM Water Pumper Hydraulic Platform (WPHP), bodywork unknown. They fitted 2-storey Snorkel which is used in aerial operation.

Royal Brunei Armed Force recently bought a similar Volvo appliance. I will post a photo of it. Hopefully it will make a presence at BRIDEX2007.
