New Livery for GAFIRS Landrover
16 June 2013
GAFIRS don’t only have lifeboats in their fleet, we also have an incident support vehicle called Gosport Rescue Mobile. This is a specially adapted landrover which allows shore crews to provide assistance to lifeboat crews as well as support incidents which are off road.
As part of the regular maintenance program, the landrover underwent an important overhaul which included corrosion prevention, body respray as well as a new livery. The exterior signage is an important update as it has brought another piece of GAFIRS equipment in line with GAFIRS corporate branding efforts.
Gosport Rescue Mobile carries rope rescue equipment, a land anchor, a compact stretcher, first aid bag as well as a winch and is capable of carrying two lifeguard canoes if they are required to attend an incident such as a mud rescue. It also tows our smaller Inshore Lifeboat, Gosport ILB, to strategic points where it can be deployed to reach casualties quicker, such as at the top of Portsmouth Harbour.
