Innovative firefighting equipment is to be rolled out across Kent - from all terrain vehicles to specialist technology which can cut through concrete and rapidly reduce the temperature of building fires.
This is the next phase of a major project to ensure that Kent Fire and Rescue Service is ready to meet the future needs of the county.
The new kit means there is more flexibility, certain incidents can be reached faster and tackled more quickly, and savings can be made by not always having to use a traditional fire engine for every job.
