On Friday 6th July the Chair of the Fire and Rescue Transition Committee, Cllr Neil Crooks, and Vice Chair, Cllr Charles Haffey visited Fife Fire and Rescue Service to receive the keys to two new Fire Appliances from Group Manager Brian Delorey. These vehicles are part of a continuous fleet replacement programme that ensures firefighters in Fife are provided with the best equipment available
These two new Fire Appliances will be located at Glenrothes and Lochgelly Fire Stations and it is anticipated they will be operationally available towards the end of July.
Each Fire Appliance when fully kitted, costs approximately £250.000 and is designed with the most up-to-date compact storage systems, along with state of the art hydraulic cutting equipment.
Group Manager Brian Delorey stated “This is a substantial investment and ensures that a continued high level of equipment and appliances are available for today’s modern Fire Service.”
