Your next firestrike cover will consist of hundreds of red fire buckets being carried to the scene of the fire :/

"New arrangements put in place since the last fire strike mean that military crews should have access to a reserve of modern red fire engines in the event of future industrial action."

Note the use of the word 'should' not will. Typical govt spendthrifting. They will now give the money saved form the storage and maintanence of these vehicles to the first lesbians\tree huggers who apply for it.

Bearing in mind how long it took to train to an acceptable standard on such a simple vehicle, how are we going to find time to train on modern, more capable and very different vehicles. Also, how many will we have access to in the event of a strike. I can just imagine the spin merchants waffling on about how we'll need fewer because of the increased capability (sound familiar?). Whole fire engine management anyone?
