New Vehicles

An additional rapid response vehicle (RRV) has been made available in Poynton and is based at Poynton Fire Station under a license agreement with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.

It is intended to move an ambulance and an RRV from Warrington Station to Birchwood Fire Station. Work to provide NWAS staff with appropriate facilities are almost complete and the intention is to move the vehicles on 3 September 2013.

From early August, the Trust will be taking delivery of new paramedic emergency service vehicles (both Fiat and Mercedes) as part of the 13/14 vehicle replacement programme. There are 41 replacement vehicles plus the Trust has invested in six new additional vehicles.
