Laingholm Operational Support

Laingholm Operational Support have been an integral part of the brigade since its formation as Fire Police back in 1955. Their role became even more important in 1999 when the brigade began accepting first response medical calls from St John Ambulance. Most Laingholm Operational Support members are medical responders and their role is supplemented by a number of the brigade's firefighters who are also qualified to handle these incidents. Laingholm's Operational Support members perform the full range of support duties and also carry out fire safety programmes such as fitting smoke alarms. The brigade's medical response van, Laingholm 7033, doubles as an Operational Support vehicle. It's a 2010 Hyundai H1 which was purchased with a donation from Portage Trust. Prior to this a 1993 Nissan, formerly an ambulance with the Kakogawa Fire Department in Japan, was used. Operational Support members also assist in the crewing of the brigade's John Deere Gator all terrain vehicle which was purchased with a donation from West Auckland Trusts.
