FBS Scotland Visit


A change of date recently saw 15 members from FBS Scotland, joined by a member from FBS Yorkshire & The Humber, visit the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service West SDA area.


Members visited; Cumbernaul; Easterhouse; Clydesmill; Polmade; Springburn; Cowcaddens and Maryhill. Despite some initial grey skies the weather did improve in the afternoon and with the assistance of the crews some great photographs were obtained by the members present. A varying selection of appliances and bodywork was seen and it was good to see more than just battenburg Scania pumps.


Thanks are expressed to D.A.C.O Heath for allowing the visit and to the members who attended and saw so many vehicles.

Hereford and Worcester Visit 07th July 2018

Many thanks to the cohort of members, from a variety of FBS Regions, who descended on the City of Worcester's new, well equipped station before heading out into the delightful surrounding countryside.
Next was a private collection of preserved airport crash tenders, along with a ubiquitous Green Goddess. These were followed by the fire stations at Pershore, the new fire station at Evesham and then Stourport, Bewdley and Kidderminster before culminating with the NFS / AFS Group and their period appliances.
We extend our grateful appreciation to Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, along with everyone we met on the day.
A full report will appear in a future Fire Cover.
