What is a new I3 actually, in addition to being a rather obvious opportunity to create a moving visual cacophony of squares, rectangles and stripes in a variety of contrasting colors?

Are there I2s too, or even one I'd ones?

Could you explain the numbering system please?

Added by CraigW on 16 May 2018.
It’s I meaning Station India pump 3 there is also I 1 India 1 which is classed as a pump ladder for rescue all stations have a letter and number C Charlie station has C1 C3 C4 so that’s a pump ladder a pump and a all terrain vehicle with pump hope this helps

I3 is the callsign, I being the code for Hartlepool fire station

Added by Stephen on 17 May 2018.
fleetnumbers are allocated in a fairly random order re-using whatever gaps there are from previous vehicles leaving the fleet, callsigns are a letter denoting the fire station then a number indicating appliance type/role

I3, B3, C3, A3, E3 carries no RTC gear at all. B1, I1, D1, H1 are dedicated Heavy Rescue Pumps.

Is this a universal system now in the UK, or a Cleveland initiative only?

Added by Rob Johnson on 17 May 2018.
So I = Hartlepool and it's their number 3 machine? I thought it was a number 13! and O16 is fixed Cleveland fleet number ? Must be quite a lot of number changing when vehicles transferred station to station. Anyone with a list of station letters ?

Added by CraigW on 17 May 2018.
the fleet number is fixed, only callsigns change if an appliance is reallocated.
A=Middlesbrough, B=Stockton, C=Grangetown, D=Redcar, E=Thornaby, F was the former (since closed) Marine, G=Billingham, H=Coulby Newham, I=Hartlepool (Stranton), J-O are the retained stations (cant remember offhand which is which letter though!), R=Reserves, T=Training Centre, W=Workshops.
1-4 are broadly water tenders/pumps (though also includes the small fires units, heavy rescue pumps and CARPs as applicable - 4 also included L4Ps etc), 5 was used on ET's/HRU + the ICU, 6 aerials (excluding the 2 CARPs), 7 was foam tenders (none left), 8 was the environmental protection unit, 9 are GPVs and 0 is/was the Land Rover WRU with trailer and boat at Thornaby!

Added by Stephen on 19 May 2018.
Fleet number is 016 (ie leading zero) as Fleet numbers are 3 digit numbers, with most operational vehicles broadly under 050 with higher numbers (including over 100) mostly being cars/vans etc plus trailers and PM pods.

following my earlier post I can now add the following Cleveland station codes after checking my records: J=Headland (Hartlepool), K=Yarm, L=Guisborough, M=Saltburn, N=Skelton & O=Loftus.

Added by Stephen on 19 May 2018.
The SFUs are B2/H2, The CARP is B4 AND M1

Thanks for the numbering info Stephen.
