According to Fire Cover No 194 page 39 both Derbyshire CARPS have been returned to JDC as not fit for purpose. JDC are replacing them with ALPs for Derbyshire at no extra cost.

Yes this is correct, they were found to be too noisy. Don't think either of them has ever turned a wheel in anger.

and overweight and therefore illegal too Phil - when will brigade transport officers learn ?

Quite right Rick. The CARP fiasco that has unfolded in recent years is well documented and yet they keep being ordered. At least the brigade seem to have reached a sensible resolution, keeping the 3 "W" reg Volvo/Bronto ALPs in the meantime. Sobering to think that 25 years ago, Derbyshire ran 6 aerials, 2 ERF/Simon HPs and 4 TLs (3 S&D and an AEC) How times change!

F&RS's in the UK now realise that this system does not work, you only have to look at what South Yorkshire and Humberside have been left with. Even Merseyside have now realised that it was'nt practical, instead they have recassied two ALP's for half the cost. I don't think thay will be around for long.

the Derbyshire Carps are for sale in Ireland one at the recent CFO conference in Cork.
