wHat is the amber beacon on the back for?

Added by David Jones on 04 September 2010.
I presume, as with most brigades with an airport in their area, are used when appliances are airside on manouvers when not engaged in emergency duties?

Hmmm could be. Maybe similar to many services that have rear reds for RTC's?

They are used as 'obstruction warning' beacons when parking during non emergency situations, hydrant inspection comes to mind

This pump has been fitted with an amber beacon as it is close to Shuttleworth Aerodrome. The Civil Aviation Authority requires all vehicles airside to be fitted with an amber beacon to be used whilst mobile, whether blue lights are being used or not. Of course, this doesn't limit it's uses, but that's why it was fitted.
