We had the pleasure to assist the West Midlands Emergency services by recovering a bus into place on the A38 Aston Express Way in Birmingham. An exercise was undertaken throughout the night and coordinated with a number of agencies to simulate a major road traffic incident. National Express West Midlands who’d provided the bus, asked us to deliver it and put it place with a number of special requirements so that it was as realistic as possible.
We were glad to have been involved in such an exercise and its importance for continually improving the emergency services. A short video on the West Midlands Fire Service can be viewed below.
