An updated colour scheme for CFA tankers will make them easier to see and ultimately safer.

New red and lime green checkers will replace the older red and white blocked striping on the sides of the tankers, following a successful trial earlier in the year with three medium tankers from Mt Eliza, Healesville and Hurstbridge.

“The change in colour, as well as the wider stripes, will make our trucks easier to see in most situations and safer for those in and around them,” says Engineering Project Manager Karen Barnet.

“The initial trial of vehicles was undertaken at the Chief Officer’s request and, after discussions with Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria, the Chief has determined the whole tanker fleet will have this new livery.” 

The new livery will be applied to the tanker fleet starting with the next build of Medium tankers which will start rolling off the production line in early 2014.
