Haslemere Fire station open day May 18, Surrey fire and rescue Service. This appliance is being trialled for about six months at Haslemere. I think they called it an initial response unit. It is crewed by the day crew but I was told not the retained crew. It is 4WD and fitted out by Rosenbauer.

This looks very much like a junior version of the German TSF-W, which has a 1000 LPM portable pump and a 500 liter water tank. As it is a 4X4, it may have a more limited water tank due to the extra weight...

Originally developed to a German DIN specification for small rural village volunteer fire companies on a limited budget to replace their old LF8-TS units, a few have also been bought as KLF (minor alarm van) substitutes by both volunteer and full-time German, Austrian and Swiss fire services.

They are not intended to replace full size fire pumps or water tenders - except perhaps in the UK?
