Kilimanjaro International Airport



There are many reason why firefighters are needed at an airport. This is because of presence of vehicles on the apron, aircraft refueling activities, weather changes, dangerous goods and runway incursions among other things. Performing these tasks requires a very high level of training and specialized equipment to be able to do them well. In order to achieve our goal, we chose the Mercedes Benz 3358 from the company Brescia Anticendi International. This company has more than 28 years of experience in the automotive industry.

Fire Fighting Vehicles: Extinguishing With Unbeaten Technology

The Mercedes Benz 3358 is a huge muscle truck, one of the latest technologies in fire trucks. It has a carriage capacity of 10, 000 liters of water, 1,200 liters of foam in a tank. The entire body is made of non-welded aluminum to reduce weight while maximizing corrosion resistance. On a chassis of 9945 mm, a total of 10,000 liters of water and load of 10,000 liter of foam lay effortlessly on it. However, it would not move anywhere without an engine. This truck engine produce 630 horsepower, to all the load and crew forward on a mission. There is no doubt that the heart of this vehicle is its performance. The pumping turret can throw water 75 meters, and the roof turret can throw water 100 meters.

Trained Fire Brigade

When the latest technology is not backed by capable personnel, it is just an illusion. Our company has a well - trained crew, which our customers are able to rely on when it comes to their needs. It takes a well-trained team to face any continuous hard work, and they do practice according to the type of aircraft in our fire protection category, so that they can meet any continuing challenge. As part of the firefighting equipment used by firefighters, they wear suits that are coated with strips of material designed to reflect heat away from their bodies. As a result, they are able to stand even in extremely hot environments. Smoke is another challenge in the firefighting process. This is the reason firefighters wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
