UK FIRE SERVICE TO USE NISSAN LEAF

Greg Emmerson
Apr 26, 2013

In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint (ironic, since it's fighting fires), and to cut operating costs, County Durham and Darlington Fire & Rescue Service (CDDFRS) in the UK has taken delivery of an electric Nissan Leaf.

Fortunately, the Nissan won't be part of the county's fire fighting operations, because range anxiety could end in some embarrassing mishaps. However, the car will be used to transport staff between the fire service headquarters and its fire stations.

With pressure on all public bodies to improve efficiency, the Leaf was seen as a way to find savings, despite the additional cost of installing three charging stations at the HQ building.

As long as the fire trucks are still diesel, the people of County Durham and Darlington can sleep soundly tonight.
