Mercedes Urban Appliances

    Two Mercedes Urban Appliances go on the run in the Brigade

Both of the two new Mercedes Urbans are now on Station . They are based at Todmorden and Holmfirth Fire Stations. Although there were initial problems with Stowage, Weight and Brake issues these have now been ironed out. There were also training implications which caused delays also. However as these first images show from back in 2006, the machines look great and will enhance the brigade fleet.
