So its been a while since I last updated my blog.
Things have certainly come on leaps and bounds! The new vehicle (Land rover Discovery) turned up in late April, and after a few teething problems is now becoming a familiar site at events. We choose the Land Rover and the model particularly for the clients and the locations which we are deploying too.
I have been asked several times,
"Why did you choose that particular model as opposed to a Defender?"
Firstly was the financial factor to consider, the vehicle isn't brand new, admittedly it has had several owners - yet due to us having excellent mechanical support from a local garage it is checked and serviced regularly and faults rectified often within a week of being reported.
Secondly there seems to be a better comfort factor within the discovery range, the seats (heated) offer support especially when parked stationary for long periods of time covering events.
The aim of the vehicle and will be the same as any subsequent vehicle purchased is to deliver an appropriately trained and experienced member of the team to an incident location, both safely and whilst carrying all the necessary equipment.
Pictures will follow soon, as it begins the facelift process of turning from a standard family off-roader into an incident support unit.
