The Volvo F1 Emergency One Pump Ladder is as deployed by the South Wales Fire & Rescue and represents one of the latest fire appliances on the emergency scene.  Our appliance is registered WX17 VWA and is decorated in bright yellow and red, with silver masking.  Note the  bi-lingual lettering on the crew cab doors and along the roof line. The impressive run of ladders stretches right along the roof as far as the roof light on the cabin, coloured silver. The crew cabin interior is all black.

Emergency One (UK) Limited is based in Cumnock where it was founded in 1989. The expanding company which has undergone a management buyout has moved to new premises on the same Cumnock estate.  It is now arguably the UK’s leading manufacturer of fire and rescue vehicles.

On to the technical aspects - the Volvo FL is built to take a 6 person crew in the extended crew cab. The appliance features a Volvo Euro-6 compliant D8K280, 280 hp engine with maximum torque of 1700 rpm.  Transmission is fully automatic with integral hydraulic retarder, an electronic braking system, ABS, Anti slip regulation (ASR),  stability control, 5.8 tonne capacity front axle with a full air suspension 19.8 tonne drive axle with locking differential (diff lock). A final safety feature to combat attack - a growing sign of the times - is anti-bandit glass to the windows. Pretty impressive!

This is the second livery on the recently added Volvo tooling, a 1:76 scale (00) model for collectors and railway modelling.
