Fire and Rescue service launces new 'fire bike' scheme

Wed, 14 Mar 2012

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service hopes a new initiative will help get road safety messages across to motorcyclists.

A private sponsor has provided crews with a brand new Kawasaki ZX10R, decked out in Fire Service colours.

It's hoped the 'fire bike' will give officers the chance to get to know members of the motorcycling community.

They'll be talking to younger people through schools and the college, as well as meeting up with bikers at gathering spots around the TT course.

Chief Officer Brian Draper says there are three key messages they'll be trying to get across.[play media file below]
