CONGRATULATIONS SEAN

RouteOne Awards 2018

 

Success in the RouteOne Awards follows from a five-part entry process that starts with nominations by the industry. Our entry was then judged against strict criteria that puts an emphasis on excellence.

‘Rising Star’ was a new category for 2018 aimed at identifying a young (under 30) coach and bus industry professional who has not only impressed the judges with their progress to date but who is showing clear signs of having the potential to take on the highest jobs.

The judges were genuinely excited and inspired by the finalists and believe that each one is a credit to the industry.

When it came to sheer enthusiasm and evident commitment to a future in the industry it came down to two names that became impossible to separate, one representing the coaching and one representing the bus industry. We are pleased to announce that the one representing the coaching industry was our very own Sean Ewen.

The image shows a very proud Sean, second from the right.

Currently in build and coming soon we have two 55 seat wheelchair accessible vehicles, capable of carrying up to four wheelchairs.

Fully equipped with a side entry lift, wheelchair users can be assured of a safe boarding of the vechicle.

Naturally the vehicles provide all of the other facilities you would expect with black and red moquette and grey leather interior to match some of our existing vehicles and other features such as CCTV, free wi-fi, reclining seats, air conditioning and for ease a rear toilet on the same level as the seating.

 

We look forward to welcoming you on board.

FIRE AND RESCUE TRAINING

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue has improved its heavy rescue training capabilities after taking delivery of two buses kindly donated to the Service by Mullanys Coaches Ltd.

With the introduction of the new Rescue Support Unit stationed at St Albans Fire Station Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue was keen to obtain some large goods vehicles to practice their Heavy Rescue skills.

Mullanys was able to donate two buses and with the assistance of Stathams Recovery these have been transported to the Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Training Centre in Stevenage. Stathams Recovery also helped to set up an emergency scenario by putting one of the buses on its side.

Crew Commander Arnett said “it is very difficult to find heavy vehicles for us to train on. With this kind donation we will be able to practice our heavy rescue skills in a more realistic environment”.

We are very grateful for the local support provided by the two companies who have been generous in the donation of the buses and the delivery and positioning of the vehicles at our training centre. The training opportunities this presents will be valuable and allow our operational crews to prepare for a variety of emergency situation.
