London Fire Brigade

Dennis N-Type emergency tender

The first emergency tender was designed to provide additional equipment at serious incidents.

It was not compulsory for firefighters to be trained in the use of breathing apparatus and, as a result, emergency tenders required a fully-trained, specialist crew to use all of the equipment.
