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

New Zealand Bedford Hira Fire party
A 1979 MFR2 originally new to the NZ Forest Service before transferring to the Nelson CIty COuncil and based at the Hira rural fire party. The tank and firefighting equipment have since been removed and the appliance was converted into a civil defence response vehicle.
