Scrap Cars needed in Richmondshire

21st January 2019

Firefighters in Richmondshire are in need of scrap cars to practice lifesaving rescue techniques.

As a fire service we spend a great deal of time working with partners to reduce the number of road traffic collisions that occur within the county. However, collisions still occur where motorists may be trapped in their vehicles and in need of rescue. Fire crews need to continually practice rescue techniques on a variety of vehicles, to help them maintain their skills.

Firefighters are asking any motorist who is looking to scrap their vehicle to contact them, and the vehicle will be put to good use. Vehicles will be disposed of at an authorised scrap dealer.

Any motorist who would like to donate their vehicle to support this training should contact Richmond fire station on 01748 823343.
