The photos also show what it looked like in its previous life as a police response car. This Astra was being retired from front-line duties with North Yorkshire Police in 2019. Instead of sending it to auction as normal, the workshops converted it into a first responder car to give it a new lease of life. This arrangement was facilitated by NYP and NYFRS sharing workshop facilities.

When the vehicle entered service with NYFRS in summer 2019 it was initially used for transport duties before being properly used as a first responder car.

A sister vehicle is YJ12 BDZ which is exactly the same; an ex-police vehicle converted to a first responder.

EO51 WEP This is a white Ford Mondeo that is used as an emergency first responder car by the LIVES group (Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service). It is unusual in the fact that the light bar on the roof contains blue and amber lights. The blues are used when the car is being used for medical purposes, and ambers for when it is not.

A look at the side of the car.
