Response Times / Weight of Response

How will you improve time and weight of response?

We believe we can improve the time of response by strengthening availability of RDS appliances across Scotland, introducing faster vehicles in urban and rural environments, deploying the latest firefighting technologies and making our crewing model much more flexible. 

To improve the weight of response, we could combine a more effective crewing model e.g. deploying safely with four, while sending more appliances to an incident e.g. two instead of three (a total crew of 12 v the current 9)

We also have the latest technologies available that our control rooms can use to send the nearest appliance irrespective of its home station.
