Progress visit to view the on-going works to our brand new Incident Control Vehicle

Further to our recent article regarding the progress of the ’production’ of our new Incident Control Vehicle (see website news report of 29th January 2013 & 5th February) On Tuesday 25th February, two members from our Incident Control Vehicle project team, set off to meet with Coleman Milne of Wigan Road, Westhoughton.

The two consisted of Steven Fletcher, Equipment Officer, Communication & Lighting (all things technical) and Incident Control Vehicle Project Team Leader Martin Banks.

The visit focused on the next project milestone the installation of all things technical, in particular the IT and communications setup, and reviewed the on-going progress of the conversion of the vehicle, based on VW Crafter LWB 2.5 Diesel van.

We are very pleased to report that the conversion of the vehicle is progressing as planned and we aim to have the vehicle operational in April this year.
