I’ve heard what I thought was ‘MORA’ in the past, which was something to do with a senior officer taking control of an incident.

OK,

SEV is not a Callsign, its a Fleet asset. The SEV takes on the Station Appliance they are Temporally Replacing.
If an SEV is assigned to a Task Force, then it on the Callsign ST-Pump ** or ST-Tanker** as seen on the door below the SEV Lettering.

In Regional areas where SEV's are stored at a Regional Stations, and if the Station is given authorisation to use the appliance by feet as a 2nd Appliance, they use the "Sierra" prefix after the Station No: ie: if stored at 386 Stn = 386 Sierra Pump.

The Callsign "Composite" isn't authorised anymore, official callsign will either be Tanker-T, CAFS Tanker - CT, Rescue Tanker - RT or Hazmat Tanker - HT.

It was announced earlier this year, all New Type 2 Appliances - Iveco Pumps onwards in the future will be delivered as CAFS Pumps.

I’m thinking you may have misheard slightly and that it was ‘LSV’ - Logistics Support Vehicle.

Both Lambton and Narellan have LSV’s.
