This Jaguar fire car is is a one-off donated and converted by Chris Coote Conversions of Scunthorpe for the Cadwell Park motor racing circuit. It is fitted with a blue light bar and repeater blue lights behind the grille. The amber beacons are used when the vehicle is on circuit in a non-emergency capacity.
The Jaguar can be manned by two people but is normally solo-crewed as the operators are volunteers.
The fire fighting equipment consists of four portable extinguishers, two "blue" powder ones and two "white" foam. It is normal practice at racing circuits to kill the fire quickly with the powder extinguisher and, if necessary cool the area down using the foam. Consequently once the rear doors are opened the first extinguisher to hand is always the "blue". A large capacity foam extinguisher is situated in the vehicle. This has to be pressurised before use and is discharged via a hose and nozzle. Once the tank is pressurised it must be discharged the same day so it isn't pressurised unless essential.
