2002 Strathclyde Fire Brigade put all ATVs off the run and they have been sent to auction. Douglas has received a Ford Ranger 4x4 and a Forestry Trailer. The Ford Ranger is not a replacement for an ATV.
November 2007 the Land Rover and Forestry trailer have been moved to Lanark but is still crewed by a Douglas crew. In 2010 the Forestry equipment was put into a cage and can be carried on the MIU based at Cumbernauld.
