The unit received a new larger capacity van in January 2009. It is used for the carriage of cliff climbing and rescue equipment in response to incidents and as a Mobile Communications and search vehicle. The van can now carry up to seven team members and the rear crew section has a drop down table with area map for search coordination.
The van is used as the Incident Command Post during local incidents.
