Dear Emily Houghton,

thank you for sending this across.

can you confirm if there are any callsigns for the high volume pod modules at bracknell please?

i believe most other fire services have a callsign for the prime mover (bracknell have JY16T8 & JY16T9) and then separate callsigns for the modules.

Yours sincerely,

jason smith

Dear Jason
Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) only assign call signs to
vehicles with radios, consequently, the Prime mover / high volume pod
modules do not have separate call signs in the Thames Valley Fire Control
Service (TVFCS) mobilising system.
Best wishes
Emily
