Mercedes Benz 616D / JDC
The only fire vehicle based on the island of Jura. It has nearly 150 square miles to cover but the permanent population is less than 200 people meaning fire calls are few and far between.
Auxiliary Fire Service
This Yellow Goddess was used in Northern Ireland, most recently in the early 2000s during firefighter strikes. The army were concerned that the vehicles would be attacked and so they were fitted with guards over the windows and locker handles were removed. The most obvious change was that there were painted yellow to distinguish them from other green military vehicles.
Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)
RNLB City of Sheffield. This vessel was retired in 2016 from Poole after saving 650 lives in a 15-year career. It is now in preservation at the National Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield, perversely 60 miles from the sea.
Rocket Rescue Cart
This horse-drawn cart was stationed at Bridlington and was built at some point between 1870 and 1910. Equipment carried includes rope ladders, cork helmets, cork lifebelt and rope with a cane attached to one end. Regular exercise drills allowed the volunteers to perfect rescue techniques and prize money was awarded to those who could throw the farthest.
