The City of Madrid has just taken delivery of 22 Renault Trucks firefighting vehicles.
Fitted with 280hp Euro 6 compliant engines, Renault Trucks tell us the all-terrain vehicles are designed for firefighting, assistance and rescue missions of people in dangerous situations or in particularly hard to access locations around the city of Madrid.
In particular, the Renault Trucks D vehicles feature protection for the electrical and pneumatic circuits as standard provided by fire resistant sheathing.
While 500 litres of the on-board 3,080 litre water tank can be used to protect the vehicle from fire itself.
The trucks have been fitted with a system that protects the cab and the tyres by projecting water onto them if the vehicle becomes trapped in the middle of a fire zone.
The Renault Trucks fire-fighting range comprises 4×2, 6×4, 8×4 and 6×2 vehicles as well as 4×4, 6×6 and 8×8 all-wheel drive vehicles specially designed for fire-fighting and emergency services.
