The new vehicles were designed by Scania with coachwork supplied by Emergency One. Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service has chosen to revert to the much-favoured and practical Fire Engine Red colour scheme with the increasingly familiar Battenburg fluorescent reflective trim.

Its sleek appearance shows it is professional and purpose-built. The new all-round brighter LED lights and reflectors make the appliance more visible to other road users and it is fitted with scene lighting on all sides.

The equipment stowage is much improved and has obviously been given some careful thought. In particular, the onus on firefighter health and safety is clear with all ladders stowed on gantries. Locker lighting has been improved, and heavy equipment is stowed at low levels for easier manual handling. All other locker shelving has the facility to slide and tilt, making it far easier and safer to gain access to the equipment.

The appliances are fitted with a number of new features, including CAFS (compressed air foam system) for a greater knock-down effect on fires as well as a longer hosereel (100m), a new and more comprehensive first aid and oxygen therapy kit and the new STABFAST stabilisation kit for use at road traffic collisions.

The cab is much more user-friendly. It offers an automatic step which drops when the door is opened, a more ergonomic layout for the driver and improved visibility for the crew. The pump is still the tried and tested Godiva World series but is much quieter in operation. It features new throttle controls and a variable height adjustment on the rear axle to lower the bodywork. Additionally the old style roller shutters on the pump bay have been replaced with more conventional folding doors.
