Devon Fire Brigade

Another photo from the emergency services. Devon Fire Brigade's Mercedes Fire Command Unit. One of 4 bought for the fleet back in 1999. They are certainly distinctive and very smart.

Sadly the Fire Brigade features in the news tonight for all the wrong reasons as firemen were bombarded with stones from youths when called out to a small fire. It seems that the fire was deliberately set as an ambush. With the recent stone throwing incident I reported on a few days ago being one of about twelve such attacks on bus drivers by stone throwing youths it seems that anyone out there providing a public service is considered a target. Of course the bus company could just decide not to serve an area after dark, as happens across the country. The Fire Brigade dont really have that option, and I am sure they wouldnt want to take such action even if they could.
