Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service
Mercedes Benz Sprinter / JDC
Known as a Rural Response Unit, this is the primary fire appliance for Caldey Islands volunteer firefighters. All of the clothing kit is stored in the vehicle rather than in the garages which are not weathertight. Normally the first person to arrive at the station would drive this vehicle to the fire scene and the other firefighters would travel directly to the scene. The station name on the door is shown as the old spelling of ‘Caldy’ rather than the current spelling which is Caldey. This appliance was delivered to the island by army chinook helicopter in January 2017. Small amounts of damage near each wheel arch can be seen where the straps suspended the vehicle below the helicopter.
