09/10/15 88 W, 1 I - + 1 - 2 German Fire Apparatus Responding


For your Thursday enjoyment, here's a random video compilation of German fire apparatus and units responding to calls. Over twenty minutes long! Many interesting things to comment upon. The mega fire stations in some shots, with ten or twenty bays. The caravan-style of travel at times, with four or six units in a row. The manueverability of those short-wheelbase European ladders. And how about that POV responding the 09:30 mark, with a portable roof-mounted light and siren.
 

 





I like the fact that most of the German trucks have 2 strobes in the grille…2 rotators on the top and maybe 2 in the back. They are light strobe and LED crazy like American trucks where you spend $1000’s just on lights!

ooops….I actually meant to say “they are NOT strobe light and LED crazy…..”
