Tallaght among five stations to receive new state-of-the-art ambulances
Tallaght Fire Station is among five in Dublin to receive a new ambulance as part of the Dublin Fire Brigade fleet replacement programme.
The state-of-the-art ambulances will be located at Tallaght, Donnybrook, Finglas, Swords and North Strand stations.
The delivery of five new Mercedes/Wilker ambulances further enhances DFB’s ability to tackle emergency calls, and once fully fitted, they will be delivered to the relevant stations.
Each ambulance features solar panels to supplement the powering of the electrical systems and reduce CO2 emissions.
Meanwhile, they also feature re-generative braking which uses braking energy to charge batteries.
According to DFB, the ambulances are also the “greenest yellow ambulances yet!”
