Awsome water crossing

I came across this video of a fire truck going thru the floodwaters in Eltham. They didn't stop for anything!

The driver obviously is not looking for a lengthy career in the CFA, I'm guessing he his going to be cleaning and polishing equipment for a long long time once management sees this. what a hero

The bow wave is deceptive.

Says a lot about diesels and deep water, good thing it has a raised air intake in the air pocket behind the cab.

The CFA management needs to look closer at that truck. It says Research on the side, he was doing just that !!
