Fire engines have developed a lot throughout the last centuries to protect the citizens and the environment. A fire truck is probably the most important and the most trustable vehicle in the traffic. The first fire trucks were designed for carrying only water tanks, not firefighters. Today, a fire truck is a complete vehicle that carries firefighters, water sources and fire equipment. There are many types of fire trucks, designed and created to meet each fire department needs and requirements.
Conventional Fire Apparatus
This is one of the most common fire truck types, which is designed mainly for firefighting operations. It transports firefighters and fire equipment to the fire scene, but it provides a limited water supply. This model is appropriate in big cities where the hydrants are available.
Aerial apparatus is the fire truck models, which offer tall ladders to reach the fires at high levels. This apparatus is also used for search and rescue, not only firefighting operations. The tall ladders are mounted on the top of the trucks, but some other ladders can be mounted behind the cab. The tallest available ladder has 32 meters and can reach fires that occurred at the seventh-floor level.
Wildland fire apparatus
The fire truck producers also offer an easy opportunity to reach wildfires on difficult terrain and high-gradient roads. They are smaller than conventional fire trucks and are mostly used for vegetation fires. They are also suitable for emergencies in rough terrain, hard accessed by other types of vehicles.
