The London Fire Brigade has 102 fire stations plus a river station. Each of these 102 landstations are using similar pumping appliances. Some stations only have one pump, others ones two. In total there are 142 front line pumping appliances available around the clock in London. Today the third generation of the Mercedes-Benz Atego is in use, called the Mark 3 by the London Fire Brigade. They are built by Emergency One on the Atego 1327F chassis. Seen here is the 2017 pumpladder from New Malden Fire Station in southwest London. In the central part of the roof, a 13.5 meter ladder is stored. With this ladder, the 4th floor of a building can be reached. That's why this pump is called a pumpladder in London. However not every pump is carrying this long ladder. The ones who don't are just called pumps.
