We started working with Operation Sabre in 2014 when they were looking for vehicles for that years project to Romania.

Our stocks allowed us to supply them with 4 Dennis vehicles that joined 3 supplied by Greater Manchester FRS all traveling together by road to Romania.

In 2015 the vehicles were changed to the Ex Devon & Somerset FRS MAN's being a smaller & more economical vehicle better suited to the Romanian climate.

June 2016 again saw 3 Ex DSFRS MAN's making the journey loaded with kit.

October 2016 another 2 D&SFRS MAN fire appliances are making their way to another 2 towns in Romania to start a new local fire service.

May 2017, this year has seen the change back to the Dennis Sabres. Three Ex Essex CFRS appliances are on their way to Mure County, Romania.
