It is a Specialist Support Unit (SSU) not a Rescue Truck

Perhaps someone can tell me what the difference is between a SSU and a Rescue Truck ???

Added by Marcel Sloover on 17 July 2006.

This is equipped with heavy cutting and lifting equipment, rope rescue equipment, the quad-pod, inflatable walkways, lighting units and it also has a Hi-Ab crane on the rear. It gets sent to special service calls in the Central Scotland Fire Service Area.

Just to clear it up here this used to be designated as a SSU (Specialist Support Unit), but in 2006 it was redesignated as a RT (Rescue Tender)
