West Sussex FRS Dennis rescue tender

This is Horsham's Crash Tender, converted to replace the old Rescue Tender that previously served at the station. As shown in the picture, this vehicle is sometimes called a Rescue Tender. It is equipted with pretty much the same equipment the other three Rescue Tenders in the county have.

The appliance is soon to be replaced by Crawley's Heavy Rescue Tender, as crawley is soon going to be receiving a new Rescue Tender, along with Worthing and Chichester.

This 1994 Dennis Rapier TF202/JDC WrL was new to station 22 Turners Hill before replacing a 1984 Rangerover/Carmichael RT at Horsham as a rescue tender following work carried out at workshops.
