The Kirchzarten fire brigade puts its faith in the extreme off-road Unimog U 5023.
Fire alarm in the hills of the Black Forest: the men of Kirchzarten’s volunteer fire service race to the fire station and, with well-drilled moves, ready themselves for deployment. Then it’s all aboard the new extreme off-road Unimog, on with the blue light and off at speed to the site of a fire in an area of forest on a steep incline.
Special operations on unmade tracks.
Fortunately this is just an exercise, but in periods of extremely hot weather and drought it could easily become a real call-out scenario. Every second counts when it comes to tackling a rapidly spreading forest fire. Each fireman needs to know his exact role, and this requires the team to work in complete unison with their fire engine.
