Man TG-M 15.284 4x4 Emergency One Pump Rescue Ladder new in 2008 for Ipstones.

Because of restrictions in the village of Ipstones, this appliance only carries the 10.5 metre ladder, so should it not be designated as a Rescue Pump?

Any reason for these in the stations that have them, have they significant rural risk ?

The three 4x4 MANs are destined for Cannock, Ipstones and Longnor. They will be very handy indeed, because Staffordshire has many remote rural areas.

There is a vast area of heath and chaseland around Cannock where firefighters regularly spend many hours - especially during hot summer months (not that we get many nowadays!)

And to the north, there are the Staffordshire Moorlands, which are part of the Pennines - very bleak and wet, particularly in winter. Ipstones and Longnor are both in the moorlands. Has anybody seen the advert on TV, where a certain double-glazing company replaces the windows, and slaps solar panels on the roof of the highest pub in England? Well that ain't Yorkshire; that pub is in Longnor's patch...

Yeah you could be right, but I don't know, Im only going on what the Watch Manager told me at Ipstones back in January. When Staffs release their up to date fleet list I know for sure and make my ammendments. I take it you have seen my fotopic website as you commented on the ladder?

Great photo. Very interesting to see how you work a rural fire-truck - probably called, over here, a "Pumper/Tanker".

Any idea of how much water she carries, and GPM of the pump ?

Yes, Adam, I have seen your photopic website. It's a great site, mate. Keep up the good work! Where are you from, by the way? And do you know whether Newcastle's Water Rescue Unit is on-the-run yet? If so, what is is reg.? I have seen Tamworth's.
