98-D-78544 Dublin Civil Defence also operate this Ford Iveco Cargo truck that is used for equipment transportation. Notice that is has amber flashing lights fitted and is able to easily drive over the snowy ground.

This vehicle is an ex-RAF truck, it originally came with a snow plough attached to the front, which was removed as it wasn’t deemed necessary for this unit, which was primarily for urban search, and all terrain rescue. As it was used by the RAF on airfields it has amber beacons, these have since been replaced by blue beacons.
