West Midlands Fire Service adds MG6 GT to fleet
The MG6 will join the Road Casualty Reduction Team, playing a major role in aiming to reduce the region’s driving accidents and helping to improve road safety.
The brigade works in conjunction with the West Midlands Road Safety Partnership, a multi-agency partnership committed to reducing the number of people killed and seriously injured on the region’s road through a variety of road safety events and campaigns across the West Midlands. Aimed at young drivers, drink-drivers and speeding motorists, the awareness campaign is taken into schools, colleges and to a large number of public events.
Sam Lewis, watch commander of the Road Casualty Reduction Team, said: ‘The MG6 will really help us to get vital messages across about all aspects of road safety. It has sporty looks, high levels of safety equipment and has a huge boot to carry all of our kit. We will be using the MG6 to help educate everyone about the importance of road safety issues. The more work we can do in this area, then potentially the more lives we can save.
‘MG is the perfect partner for us, as the brand was founded on promoting safe driving for fast cars with the slogan Safety Fast.’
