TURNTABLE LADDERS GO ON THE RUN IN WALES!

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (MAWWFRS) has upgraded its aerial rescue provisions, with three new Turntable Ladders now in operation and on the run at Morriston, Aberystwyth and Haverfordwest fire stations.

Group Manager Ricky Woodhead said: “During 2020, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service undertook a project to replace the two aerial rescue platforms, based at Swansea West and Haverfordwest, and one Turntable Ladder, that was stationed at Aberystwyth, with three brand new turntable ladders.

“As part of the project, and following careful consideration and extensive consultation, the new Turntable Ladder that is allocated to our Swansea Command Area has been relocated to Morriston Fire Station.

“The replacement and upgrade of our aerial rescue provision is an essential step for MAWWFRS to become a world leader in emergency response and to better protect the communities of mid and west Wales.”
