North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service
Iveco / Emergency One
Tactial Response Vehicle. Two example of the six that were introduced in 2017. They are based at Harrogate, Malton, Northallerton, Ripon, Tadcaster and Scarborough. The appliances are crewed by three staff rather than four or five in a larger appliance. They are slightly smaller and lighter than atraditional appliance at 10 tonnes rather than 15. While some counties have gone for mucyh smaller vehicles based on a van, NYFRS have gone for larger vehicles to allow the flexibility of carrying up to five people and more equipment. Their introduction was marred by resistence from the FBU and negative news stories that they were not as good as a full fire appliance, despite looking the same to any casual observer.
