Are Cleveland going the same way as other brigades replacing full sized pumps with these 4x4's and like others with vans?

Added by Grant.Melville on 14 October 2015.
These 2 seem to be to replace a pair of ex-Merseyside Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 SFUs acquired last year

Thanks for the info Stephen.

Anyone know how these are tasked. Who decides it is a SFU job? Do the two SFU's cover the whole of Cleveland or just a certain ground ?

Carries fleetnumber 050 and callsign B2 by November 1st (2015)

What's going on with the ex Merseyside vans? That going to be moved elsewhere or scrappy or sold off

Added by Steven Hughes on 02 November 2015.
Does anyone know the fleet number of the other one (DMX) or indeed the two blue vans they replace?

Added by Mark on 03 November 2015.
Hi blue SFU are currently running out of the marine station the crew from marine are split between both vans and cover from 2 pm to 9 pm then go back on normal pump for rest of shift . As I understand it

for Mark:

the other Isuzu (BK65DMX) is fleetnumber 039, callsign Hotel 2

These have a very small equipment compartment and an extremely limited payload.

Does anyone know what they actually carry - and what their true capabilities really are?

Many countries operate minor alarm trucks or vans, but these all seem to be quite a lot larger and potentially more useful than Cleveland's little Isuzu pickup trucks in most cases.

The exception is the French VTU, which is usually just a light van. This is just loaded up before turning out with whatever might seem likely to be needed to attend a non-urgent special service call - and staffed by one or two crew members.
