Surrey Fire & Rescue Update

Surrey Fire and Rescue - Update.
A Prototype Electric Fire Engine has been on trial in Surrey (photo).   Fire and Rescue services from across London and the South East came to Surrey to see the prototype electric fire engine put through its paces. The Fire Truck has barely any exhaust emissions and boasts a range of other innovative features. 


Surrey Fire and Rescue is changing how it responds to changing demands. In the past 10 years the number of fires has reduced by 50%, but the number of road traffic accidents has increased by 50%. And last year there were NO fatalities anywhere in Surrey through fires. So more emphasis needs to be given to the "Rescue" part of Fire and Rescue. There is due to be a Public Consultation by Surrey Fire and Rescue. If anyone would like more detailed information, just let me know.
