Mountain Rescue Vehicle
20 October 2015
We have just about finished our latest vehicle conversions project for Cockermouth Mountain Rescue www.cockermouthmrt.org.uk We have lots of experience in converting mountain rescue vehicles and were really pleased to add this Mercedes Sprinter 4 x 4 conversion to our list. We worked closely with Ciceley Commercials www.ciceleymercedes-benz.co.uk who provided the base vehicle. We spent a lot of time talking to Cockermouth Mountain Rescue team members about their requirements in terms of communications, seating, stretcher, heating, lighting, livery, beacons etc to make sure that we got it all just right. As you can see, the finished vehicle looks pretty smart and Cockermouth MRT are looking forward to it going operational once the Sprinter has had its IVA test in the next couple of weeks. It takes a lot of funding and planning to get a new mountain rescue vehicle on the road. Each team has to work hard at generating income through fund raising and grants in order to put a new vehicle on the road. Wherever possible at James Alpe we do our best to provide a fit for purpose vehicle which will withstand the rigours of the harsh elements whilst at the same time proving good value for money.
