4 x 4 MAN

The service identified a need for an increased capability to deal with heathland, grassland and forestry fires, along with a capacity to deal with the threat of flooding.  The appliances are based on a MAN chassis and have been billed by the coachbuilder Emergency One.  The 4x4s will be located strategically across the county to address the fire and flooding profile.  The capability will be the same as the other appliances with Weber HRE, PLUs, winching capability and compressed air foam systems.  The cabs will have the capacity to carry up to nine personnel.
