FENZ wishes to purchase approximately 100 Vehicle Rescue Stability Struts in a one-off purchase and then retain the ability to purchase more items on an ad-hoc basis over the following 4 years of the contract. The contract would also cover a list of accessories to support the equipment.
Current Situation- For the past 18 years we have been taught improvised side stabilisation using, hold-em foot, crowbar and ratchet strap. For number of years commercially available stabilisation kits have been available. In recent years their ergonomics has improved markedly, in terms of ease of use and weight.
There is a number of disadvantages of the traditional set up including; improvisation, slow setup, inability to work on sloping ground, only being able to set up on the chassis side of the vehicle and variability of equipment been available on the Pump Rescue Tender.
