There are many types of fire apparatuses. As you probably know, a firefighter responds to many types of emergencies, not only to fires. The fire department sends vehicles and firefighting crew in case of flooding, earthquake, general and water rescue, car crashes, and even chemical and radioactive spills. Therefore, fire truck manufacturers have developed and designed over the years many types of vehicles, depending on the needs of every situation.
The heavy rescue vehicle
One of the many types of fire vehicles is the technical rescue apparatus. This is a heavy rescue vehicle, which is sometimes referred to as a Rescue Squad or Technical Rescue. It is a specialized fire truck, which is designed to carry specialized equipment for technical rescue emergencies, such as vehicle extraction, confined space rescue, machinery rescue, structural collapse rescue, trench rescue, and water rescue.
Specialization and features
In addition to fire departments, railway and tram companies have sometimes their own heavy rescue apparatuses, because railway rescue squads may carry very specialized equipment. All fire truck manufacturers make sure these vehicles are prepared for railway accidents and they must have the capacity for lifting locomotives and must be equipped for tank car accidents. The configuration of this vehicle is big and heavy, which does not allow it to enter narrow roads or rough terrain. It is perfect for an urban area in general.
