Fire Appliance Sizes and Weights

We build all of our operational vehicles to be no larger than the guidance laid out in the following document – Approved Document B Section B5 table 15.2

Additionally, we would expect the provisions of the following to be considered as part of the design if required – Traffic Signs Manual Chapter 4

Whilst the dimensions for our current fleet are below, we cannot guarantee that they will remain the same as we replace our fleet.

We also cannot guarantee that the fire service response to a particular address will be supplied by Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service on all occasions.
