Toyota strikes fire service deal

TOYOTA has secured a solus deal with the Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service to supply its officers with cars. Officers will be able to choose from across the whole range of Toyota vehicles in the UK market, which will be supplied through Toyota's contract hire scheme, initially on a three-year term.

Thirty cars have been supplied already and negotiations for another 33 are being finalised. The vehicles will be used to travel to and from operational and other emergency type incidents across an area of 1,015 square miles, between 31 fire stations as well as private use.

Each officer has an undisclosed budget to spend on a car, which they can top-up with their own money. At the end of the three-year term they can purchase it outright or choose a new model.
