DAF Transporter

22nd June 2018

We use our DAF truck, callsign ‘BAY Mobile 7’, as a means of deploying our Hagglunds inland as part of our role as an All Terrain Rescue Unit for Cumbria Fire and Rescue & Lancashire Fire and Rescue. These 28ft 18 tonne DAF CF65-220 Box Trucks have specially designed hydraulic tail ramps and raised roof heights, to allows us to easily and quickly load and transport a Hagglund quickly to any incidents in the Lake District or Lancashire areas. Once on scene we are able to use the Trucks as welfare or command units (or at least get out of the rain!).

In the event of an emergency dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard (coastal rescue) or Fire & Rescue (land rescue).

For advice call the Team Duty Officer on the 24/7 Direct Number: 0300 999 0333 and if required we will inform the appropriate service.
