With so many appliances visible on just one side of the incident, it will come as no surprise to learn that this incident required 20 pumps, 2 HPVs, 1 TTL, 1 HLL, 1 ET, 1 ST plus Control Unit, Operational Support Unit and Canteen Van. This was followed by a 15 pump relief and subsequently two 10 pump reliefs.
