Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has taken delivery of its first 18-tonne Scania P 320 4x2 fire engine, as part of a deal that will see 33 identical units enter the service over the next three years.
Featuring Scania’s CP31 CrewCab, the largest all-steel safety crew cab available in its range for fire engines, it can sit six and is capable of storing breathing apparatus.
The rigid’s body has been kitted out with Yorkshire-based Angloco, which specialises in building bodies for fire service vehicles. Pumps, an 1,800-litre water tank, and a smaller 110-litre foam tank have been fitted alongside two vehicle-mounted power take-offs (PTO). One PTO drives the 3,400-litre per minute rated pump, and the other powers an ultra-high pressure cutting extinguisher (UHPCE) system.
Also mounted to the Scania are two 45m long water hose reels and a reservoir for the UHPCE system. Other additions include lockers, four ladders and specialist fire and rescue equipment including road traffic accident tools.
MD of Angloco Alistair Brown, commented on the order: “We are delighted to be manufacturing these new Scania-based appliances for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service, and all three parties have built a great working relationship together to ensure the finished product is what we expected.”
