Alternative Agency Services
Here we've included a selection of images taken by, and given to, the brigade of other service vehicles, which include fire and other services. We've added these photographs to raise awareness of the different kind of services within Australia that Bargo, being part of the NSW Rural Fire Service, does work with from time to time.
There are photographs included of vehicles that are no longer in service but is not mentioned in their descriptions. Vehicles have been alphabetized.
