Bedfordshire Rescue Tender Handover

Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue recently took delivery of their new Specialist Rescue Unit.  The previous, much-loved Mercedes had served the brigade well, but technology and options have moved on since its creation.

With the SRU now carrying such a vast quantity of specialised equipment, a significant amount of stowage planning and design was carried out up front. Four pantographs (swing-out trays) were mounted so that, when opened out, the middle of the body could easily be used for further stowage of equipment.  And it could also now be located at a safe working height. The stowage also allowed a 15% spare capacity for future equipment over the expected 20-year life of the appliance.

The custom-designed copolymer body is mounted on a Scania P360 26t, 6x2*4 with rear steer and a CP28 crew cab. Bushey Hall installed both front and rear hydraulic winches controlled with radio remote. Palfinger’s PK 18502.SH (also radio remote-controlled) high performance crane is mounted to the rear with a 6.2t lifting capacity and maximum outreach of 17m.
