Farmall shines light on fire safety

Written by  Mark Daniel

Spotted at Fieldays, and following a theme first seen in the New Holland ‘police’ tractor, Case IH New Zealand has unveiled a special edition ‘fire’ tractor as part of a partnership with Fire and Emergency NZ. 

The Case IH Farmall tractor has flashing lights and a siren and is finished in livery typical of fire trucks everywhere. 

Although it won’t be used to fight fires, the Case IH fire tractor will assist Fire and Emergency NZ to spread the message about fire safety in rural regions.

Case IH operations manager Tim Fanning says “Fire and Emergency NZ plays a vital role in helping keep our communities safe, so we are delighted to partner with them to help them engage with the public in a fun and unique way”.  

Fire and Emergency’s national advisor fire risk management, Rob Goldring says the partnership and tractor will enable them to “talk with rural communities about developing   greater resilience, especially in fire prevention and volunteer sustainability”.
