Estonian brigades of firefighting and rescue represent an important part of the Estonian culture. It is the same as it was one hundred years ago when Estonia became an independent country. The firefighters were at the heart of the country back then, and they supported and even worked voluntarily when they needed to. In 1991, eighteen firefighters founded the Estonian Firefighting Association, which was based on the community principle. The association is still active today and responds to various emergencies to protect society.
Special Purpose Vehicles Engineering
The Estonian fire departments are mainly interested in the procurement of two types of fire trucks. The first vehicle is the conventional fire truck, based on the model Scania P400 4×4 chassis. This fire apparatus must be equipped with firefighting and rescue equipment, a motorized pump with a large capacity water tank, hoses, ladders, and a rescue platform. The second vehicle is a heavy rescue fire truck Estonia, customized to carry large quantities of water. It is required to output up to three thousand liters per minute. Estonian government invests large amount of money in manufactured composite containers for the firefighting equipment as well.
Where does Estonia buy fire trucks from?
In 2016, Estonia placed the largest foreign order to a Polish company. The contract exceeded the amount of 130 million euros. Today, the Estonian brigades reoriented their attention to the Turkish producers, in order to customize the best quality fire truck Tallinn. The particularities of the Estonian fire apparatus are innovation, high-quality, high efficiency, and durability. Volkan Fire is one of the best producer and distributor in Turkey, which offer many types of fire apparatus, customized and standard.
