Suffolk Fire and Rescue new Pump rescue tender

This is just one of the 8 new Pump Rescue Tenders (PRT) that Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service has purchased in 2008. These are the First Fire appliances to have been purchased by Suffolk in 5 years, and are probably some of the most eagerly awaited pumps in recent years, and as first impressions go......they have done a prettty good job!!

The 8 PRTs will be going to:
Princes Street (Ipswich)
Bury St Edmunds

Whats the hold up Peter, something wrong with them, you would think with no purchases in 5 years they would be wanting to get these on the run ASAP !
