Weber Rescue UK awarded one of UK’s largest contracts for battery rescue tools

Weber Rescue UK is pleased to announce that we have been awarded one of the UK’s largest contracts for the supply of battery cutting equipment to South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue and West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service.

The contract process was a joint procurement between both services designed to save them time and money. But it is also believed it will improve training and maintenance making them more efficient in the future.

The process of procuring the equipment was led by South Yorkshire whilst team members from West Yorkshire organised the research and development side of the project.

The new tools, which are the same specification across both Fire Services, bring operational benefits such as an increased cutting force over current equipment, ease of setup and also longer running time of tools. Having standardised Equipment across both services will ensure that rescue equipment is compatible when attending over-the-border incidents. In addition to this both services receive the same training to enable more efficient and effective working between the services. 

South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Chief Fire Officer James Courtney, said: “This is a great investment in standardising operational equipment and will undoubtedly improve our response to rescue incidents. By collaborating on projects such as this with our neighbouring services presents us with a great opportunity to provide a more effective and efficient service to the people we serve.”

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service Chief Fire Officer John Roberts, said: “We are continually looking at how we can work closely with our partners and neighbouring Fire and Rescue Services. This is a great example of how this approach can work to everyone’s advantage, saving the taxpayer money, reducing the time and effort spent on research and ensuring that when we do respond to emergencies we can work more closely than ever by virtue of carrying identical equipment.”

The services have opted for the popular RSU180 as their front line cutter with it’s TeamGOLD blade inserts and formidable blade arrangement for superior cutting performance. THe SP44AS E-FORCE 2 was the preferred spreader with its impressive tips. They include titanium nitride studded tips give improved grip on modern day vehicle materials. Both services then opted for the RZT2-1360 E-FORCE 2 ram. When closed this ram fits perfectly inside the space created by the 600mm spreading distance of the SP44 AS. 

Weber Rescue UK Director Richard Wood said, “Fire and Rescue services in the emergency sector are joining together which increases their buying power. This enables us to give them the best offer and support package.”

Weber Rescue UK look forward to supporting both services throughout the contract.

Go The Distance with Weber Rescue

Distance Markings

All future rescue rams from WEBER RESCUE will have laser-etching on the piston rod to indicate the rams’ remaining extension length.

This early warning system enables you to decide right away whether the ram you are currently using is long enough for the job or whether a longer ram must be prepared and used.

A real time saver at work!

There are four etched lines around the circumference which indicate the remaining length.

Each line has Centimetre and Inch markings which can be clearly seen from all angles. They show the last available 20 centimetres and so help you to select the right rescue ram.

A real plus for rescue work!

Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service make Weber Rescue's E-FORCE 2 it's preferred choice

Following an extensive evaluation, Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service recently chose Weber Rescue’s battery operated E-FORCE 2 for its performance, quality of equipment and operational user benefits.

The evaluation process, whereby all suppliers were asked to attend Gloucester South Fire Station to present their products and capabilities to over 30 operational personnel, was also attended by members of the newly formed Research and Development Innovation Hub (based at the Fire Service College), to see how the evaluation was completed.

Gloucestershire FRS’s Head of Research and Development Group Manager Dave Pike said, “Moving forward with battery operated rescue equipment on our frontline appliances was an ideal approach for a modern emergency service like Gloucestershire, as the equipment has all the performance for RTC incidents, yet has none of the restrictions or risks of the traditional equipment, and will also reduce ongoing costs to the service.”

Equipped with the latest technologies within it’s drive unit, unique to Weber Rescue, ensures that the system is highly efficient and provides a longer working time, extended battery duration and also a key safety feature whereby, the tool has the ability to turn itself off when not in use. This ensures that tools are not left ‘live’ at the scene.

Richard Wood from Weber Rescue UK said, “Gloucestershire are equipping their frontline appliance with the ultimate batteryoperated tools, which consist of the RSU200EF2 Cutter, which offers up to 107 tonnes cutting force and is ideal for all RTC and heavy rescue requirements. The Spreader is the SP53 BS EF2, which provides over 42 tonnes spreading force and has an immense 800mm opening. To complement these “Black Series” tools is the new RZT2-1360EF2 Telescopic Rescue Ram, which has a large opening of 1360mm”

Gloucestershire FRS, like many UK fire and rescue services, will enjoy benefits of hose-free rescue work.
