The marked Merc is used for officers blue light driver training and is normally driven by the head of driver training, the chief and his 3 deps all drive unmarked Mercs

Barrie:

I am sure the Cheshire ratepayers are grinning like Cheshire cats to know that - as their fire service cuts costs and coverage - their senior officers are running around in unmarked Mercedes.

Is the police can manage with diesel Opel Vectras, why not the fire service?

I think they're all leased though, Rob. They thrash the arses off them for 4 years and then hand them back.

Yelp:

Still a costly proposition, even if they are leased.

I know because I have leased a couple in my time...
