Rygor Holds Truck Awareness Training for Local Fire Service

Wednesday 19th September 2018


Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle Dealer group, Rygor, recently held a truck training morning for members of Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The dealership, which specialises in the provision and maintenance of trucks and vans, welcomed local firefighters to their headquarters in Westbury, where Chris Moore, Rygor truck training manager, took them through the safety and operational features of a Mercedes-Benz truck.

Watch Manager Guy Tadman, from Trowbridge fire station, said: “Part of our role in the fire and rescue service is to attend incidents involving heavy goods vehicles. We have a specialist heavy rescue unit at Trowbridge, which is why we wanted to enhance our knowledge of the operation and safety features of heavy goods vehicles further. We approached Rygor as a local commercial vehicle dealership and they were more than happy to help us. Chris, who has been showing us around the vehicles today, has been brilliant. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and has been able to teach us a great deal, which will no doubt be of benefit when we next attend an HGV incident.”

Chris Moore, Rygor truck training manager, said: “Whilst trucks are highly specified and fitted with the very latest safety features, they do present unique challenges for firefighters if involved in a serious road traffic collision.

“It has been great to work with the local fire crew this week, taking them through the vehicles to offer them an even greater understanding of trucks. For the team at Rygor, it is so important to work with the local community, especially indispensable provisions like the fire service and I am glad that they have found it so beneficial,” Chris added.
