Team introduces in to full operational service our latest vehicle; BM6 our brand new Incident Control Vehicle
This evening, after commissioning works which had started immediately after delivery from Coleman Milne on Thursday evening, 30th May, through Friday, Saturday, Sunday and all day today, at 19.47hrs this evening we announced to all our membership that our brand new state of the art, specialist coach built ‘Incident Control Vehicle’ was now fully operational within the Bolton MRT.
Volkswagen Crafter CR35 LWB MJ13UHT Radio Call Sign ‘Bolton Mobile 6,’ now joins our five other team vehicles, in enabling us to provide an excellent voluntary search and rescue service to the local community we serve.
The contribution of Coleman Milne to the successful completion of this vehicle cannot be stressed enough, alongside the support of Volkswagen UK and their local dealership.
Our current vehicle fleet now stands at six operational vehicles;
