Tailored for emergency operation
Like our firefighting customers, we leave nothing to chance. Not a single stone has been left unturned in the engineering of this generation of firefighting vehicles. The result is a range more powerful and reliable than ever before.
The fire engine is a first-line attack appliance and the primary purpose include transporting firefighters to an incident scene, providing water and carry other required equipment.
Water / foam carriers
A water/foam carrier is a specialized firefighting apparatus design to transport water to a fire scene. Traditionally support first-line appliances or operate in oil-, chemical- or electric plants.
Turnable ladders and Aerial platforms
The majority of fire brigades need to supplement their fleet with a turntable ladder or aerial platform with working heights up to 40 meters, sometimes even up to 100 meters.
In some instances there is a need for a vehicle to be flexible; to leave the scene and return within minutes as a water/foam carrier or even a fully-equipped ambulance. That's hook-lift flexibility.
Industrial fire vehicles
Industrial fire vehicles are highly specialised applications, used at refineries or petrochemical industries.
Emergency services and fire brigades need to carry both personnel and equipment rapidly and safely. The safety and well-being of crew members was a primary aspect in the development of the new Scania CrewCab. The whole crew can be protected by four rollover side-curtain airbag.
