Whether your interest is police, fire, ambulance, or associated emergency and rescue services, this fully illustrated book of nearly 200 images captures the 999 services of the west of England going about their daily business. Covering the region stretching from South Gloucestershire to Cornwall, and from Weston-super-Mare to the Hampshire border, West of England Emergency Service Vehicles often captures the emergency services responding live to incidents on land, sea, and in the air. Complementing the police (including the Avon & Somerset, Dorset and Devon & Cornwall forces), fire and ambulance services are the RNLI and Coastguard, Air Ambulance, the Bristol Airport Fire Service, and specialist vehicles such as the latest HART (Hazardous Area Response Team) vehicles and an Ebola ambulance as well as the Alcohol Recovery Unit and vintage preserved fire appliances. Following on from his London’s Emergency Service Vehicles, author Dave Boulter offers a real flavor of the modern emergency scene in the west of England, making this lavishly illustrated volume a must for anyone with an interest in emergency vehicles.
