STS is a proud sponsor of the Karratha Fire Brigade. STS has donated time, expertise and parts in order to keep KFB Fire Engines functioning and ultimately the community safe.
Christmas is a busy time of the year for the Karratha Fire Brigade. They use their historic J5 Bedford fire truck to spread Christmas cheer to young children in the community. At the time Fire Chief Mark Ellison approached STS to inquiry about the truck’s water leak…After inspection, the truck had a leaky water pump from the shaft seal and needed a new bush.In today’s climate, rebuilding water pumps is a very uncommon practice however STS’ vast knowledge and experience within mechanical engineering gave them the ability to do so. While deconstructing, repairing and or rebuilding anything can be time-consuming the alternative was purchasing a replacement which was impossible.
So we dismantled the water pump.After stripping the water pump, sourcing bushes and seals the water pump got rebuilt. It was then refitted to the J5 Bedford and then final adjustments were put in place.  This was a repair carried out free of charge so that Santa could be out on the red engine to spread Christmas cheer within the community. 


Pilbara Youth Services is a great community-based program organising events and connecting with the Aboriginal Communities.
One of their planned trips was a camp in the coastal town of Broom. STS carried out a service on the bus they were taking and found major issues with the bus they had been lent. Unfortunately, the bus was not safe to be used. Without this bus, this group of children would not be able to go to their camp in Broom… With the mountain of contacts that STS has within the transport industry and to support the cause, a few phone calls to find a solution.
STS found a bus that could be donated for free but it was brought to their attention there was another catch. The original bus they were using came with free fuel.
STS put their hands in their pockets and gave the driver of the vehicle a fuel card, then donated all the fuel they needed to make sure the kids got to Broom for their camp safe and sound. STS are proud to support local youth services and even happier to receive a hand-drawn traditional painting and photo collage that the students made.
