Red Alert now even ‘Swifter’

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

THE Pi­eter­mar­itzburg branch of Red Alert in­tro­duced its first Suzuki Swift into its fleet dur­ing 2015 as part of an eval­u­a­tion process to es­tab­lish suit­abil­ity for 24hour armed re­sponse pur­poses.

The com­pany took de­liv­ery of ad­di­tional Suzuki Swifts from Fury Suzuki Pi­eter­mar­itzburg on May 5 as part of its pro­gramme to re­place their cur­rent fleet of re­ac­tion ve­hi­cles.

This af­ter Red Alert’s Avinash Sukai in Septem­ber told Wheels he was very im­pressed with the re­sponse from the 1.2 en­gine that makes a sur­pris­ing 63 kW and 115 Nm from only 4 000 rpm. The in­vest­ment into an ever ex­pand­ing new fleet says a lot about how far Red Alert have come as a com­pany, whilst at the same time, it high­lights their in­ten­tions for the fu­ture.

“The fre­quency and vi­o­lent na­ture of cer­tain crimes dic­tates that as a se­cu­rity or­gan­i­sa­tion we must con­tin­u­ally seek out new ways to en­hance re­sponse times and im­prove our lev­els of ef­fi­cien­cies. By main­tain­ing and con­tin­u­ally up­grad­ing our op­er­a­tional in­fra­struc­ture, while keep­ing ser­vice de­liv­ery as our pri­mary mo­ti­va­tor for growth, we demon­strate a strong com­mit­ment to­wards con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment where it mat­ters most” says Red Alert’s re­gional man­ager, Rob An­der­son.

Gary Stokes, dealer prin­ci­pal of Suzuki Fury in Pi­eter­mar­itzburg, said his team is very proud to be associated with Red Alert.
