With a comprehensive selection of fire-fighting technology products, Rosenbauer is a recognized partner to German professional fire departments.

Rescue vehicles deployed by professional fire departments are globally deployable. To reflect this, Rosenbauer has the matching vehicles like cabins for crews of between 1 and 8, various tank capacities and extinguishing agents, the right fire-fighting solution for any operation, user-friendly holding devices for a wide range of equipment, and modern vehicle design. For Rosenbauer, custom-building to reflect customer requirements with respect to standards and operation tactics has top priority.

They always and exclusively use state-of-the-art materials, and their products are built in line with the latest production methods. The Aluminum Technology (AT) vehicle design with an integrated crew cabin in the 9 to 18 ton class is now increasingly being used by Germany's professional fire departments due to its wide range of equipment options and state-of-the-art fire-fighting technology.

Recover, rescue, extinguish and protect

Germany currently has around 100 professional fire departments. The wide range of tasks the professional fire departments handle span fire fighting and hazard protection, disaster protection and even some elements of emergency rescue services. Technical aid is another very important - field covered by professional fire departments. In fact, only some 30% of all operations are fire-fighting operations. For this reason, fire department vehicles with their technical equipment play an essential supporting role in any professional fire department operation.
