For six months from October, West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS) will be adding an IVECO and Mercedes to its operational fleet.
They will be used by fire crews to respond to incidents and when they undertake fire prevention and protection work in their communities.
Crews based at Coventry, Highgate in Birmingham, and Walsall fire stations will take part in the trial.
It’s part of WMFS’s drive to ensure that its blended fleet remains as flexible and future-proof as possible.
Area Manager Steve Ball, of WMFS, said: “Since 2013 we’ve operated 4×4 brigade response vehicles – BRVs – alongside our traditional fire engines. These two vehicles provide an opportunity to explore how we can further diversify our fleet and our responses to incidents.
“They will respond to 999 calls, such as road traffic collisions and fires. They will also be used by our firefighters when, for example, they’re undertaking community safety work.”
