Copt Hewick Volunteer Fire Brigade -

probably the world's smallest fire brigade!

TLF8s – 800lpm pumping appliances with water tank – page 1

A TLF8 is based at each of the three fire stations of the Brigade. (See here for more information on the fire stations.) The two older versions, shown here, follow a common design apart from the length of the main ladder carried. The appliance operating out of the Old Central Fire Station and serving the mediaeval Old Town carries a 7m double extension ladder for ease of manoeuvrability in the narrow streets, while the other appliance based at the New Town Fire South Station carries a 14m double extension ladder. Both also carry a roof ladder.
