The Magirus Team Cab will be integrated into all of the 53 fire engines ordered via Emergency One The Magirus Team Cab scores with great comfort, functionality and security, which convinces fire departments around the world. Babcock International Group (Babcock), responsible for all fleet management tasks of the London Fire Brigade, has now specified and ordered 53 fire engines via Emergency One UK Ltd (E1), the Scottish fire-fighting technology equipment manufacturer. The Magirus Team Cab will be integrated into all of them. The first vehicle will be delivered in May; delivery of the remaining 52 vehicles will extend over the next one and a half years until the end of 2017. London’s fire-fighters will thus be protected by state-of-the-art safety technology during their operations. The vehicle was unveiled and presented in a ceremony in the presence of HRH Prince Charles, or the Duke of Rothesay as he is known in Scotland. Ron Dobson, Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade, said: “It was an honour to be able to show the prototype to His Royal Highness and I am looking forward to the new designs going into service later this year.” “With the Team Cab, we were able to offer E1 and Babcock an excellent crew compartment. In addition to the special comfort it offers, it is the first cab on the market to be certified according to the newest ECE crash test requirements,” said Thales Maia, Director of Sales and Marketing at Magirus. The Duke of Rothesay also praised the “incredible high-quality appliance” and congratulated all those involved for their contribution.
All vehicles are mounted on an IVECO Eurocargo chassis and have large water tanks and a Magirus MPN230 centrifugal pump After delivering 40 Magirus fire engines to the “Junta Nacional de Bomberos de Chile” one year ago, another 100 vehicles from a second order has now been sent to Chile as well. In the presence of Chile’s Minister of the Interior Jorge Burgos together with the leader of the Chilean fire departments Miguel Reyes, representatives of 45 fire departments gathered to accept their vehicles. In a country with 18 million inhabitants and great topographic challenges, some 40,000 firefighters – nearly all of them voluntary – ensure the population’s protection. Especially taking into account the major 2014 fire in Valparaiso, the Chilean authorities decided to equip their fire departments with a large number of new and robust vehicles. They ordered 100 fire-fighting vehicles of the following types: 1. 50x TLF4000 (C4 Semiurbano)2. 20x TLF4000 All-wheel (C4 Semiurbano)3. 30x TLF3000 (C5 Forest) All vehicles are mounted on an IVECO Eurocargo chassis and have large 3,000 or 4,000 litre water tanks and a powerful Magirus MPN230 centrifugal pump. Delivery of the vehicles took place within only twelve months of the order date. 45 years ago, Magirus delivered its first fire fighting vehicles to Chile. Today, the vehicles are an integral part of the street scene in the South American country.
