The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service have teamed up with Liverpool Hospitals Primary Care Trust and Action on Cancer to promote awareness of one of the city's biggest killers. This former Old Swan appliance was painted with the assistance of the PCT and allocated to Kensington Fire Station where she responds to incidents. The idea came about when one of the station's crew lost his father to cancer and whilst visiting America he saw a pink fire appliance. I must say after seeing her on many occaisions speeding along Prescot Road it looks pretty impressive.
