Rosenbauer handed over a brand new aerial rescue platform to the main fire station of the Freiburg professional fire brigade.
The delivery of the high-end device is another milestone in the multi-year procurement program funded by the state of Baden-Württemberg, in the course of which Rosenbauer Karlsruhe manufactured a total of four high-quality aerial rescue devices - three of them with a working height of more than 40 m - for fire departments in the administrative districts of Tübingen, Karlsruhe and Freiburg.
Technically sophisticated vehicles
Michael Kristeller, Managing Director of Rosenbauer Karlsruhe GmbH: “We are very proud that the fire brigades in Baden-Württemberg have placed their trust in us for these technically sophisticated vehicles in particular.” Rosenbauer aerial rescue devices are in use all over the world, vehicles such as the new Freiburg aerial rescue platform were produced for fire departments in Norway and Australia, among others.
They have a completely newly developed telescope with a four-part main arm and a one-part cage arm
They have a completely newly developed telescope with a four-part main arm and a one-part cage arm, which offers a larger working area than conventional devices of the 40m class. In addition, they are equipped with a newly developed outrigger and outreach control which, in addition to more outreach, also provides more flexibility and, for example, allows set-up time-optimized propping in the case of inclined positions.
Professional fire brigade
The HLM podium, as it is also installed in Rosenbauer turntable ladders, ensures a high level of safety in use with LED access, deck area and surrounding area lighting. The B45FA 2.0 for the Freiburg professional fire brigade is a fully-fledged first use device (FA) with a built-in fire pump. The vehicle is built on a 26t chassis from MAN, has a horizontal-vertical support with a width of up to 6.30 m and reaches a working height of 45 m.
With the N55 pump installed in midship and the HYDROMATIC industrial foam proportioning system, the aerial rescue platform can be used for fire-fighting work immediately after being connected to a tank fire engine or a hydrant. The extinguishing water is guided to the cage via a telescopic water riser along the lifting rescue kit and can either be discharged via a pressure outlet or via an electrically operated or remotely controlled cage thrower.
Aerial rescue platform
The Freiburg aerial rescue platform is fully equipped for every type of height deployment
The pump speed and proportioning rate of the turret can not only be adjusted via the central control station, but also via an additional control element in the basket. The system output of the extinguishing technology is 5,000 l / min, the turret mounted on the front of the cage delivers an output of 4,000 l / min at a height of 40 m.
The Freiburg aerial rescue platform is fully equipped for every type of height deployment. The spacious rescue cage has a payload of 600 kg and a fold-down platform with a payload of 300 kg at the front. It has a rotatable adapter to hold the stretcher on the cage rail and an adapter frame for heavy-duty stretchers. Zoom and infrared cameras are located in the basket on a pan / tilt head and can be operated from both the basket and the main control station.
Target Memory System
A 17 “screen is installed in equipment room 4, which shows the images from the basket cameras. There is also a video recorder equipped with a WLAN module on board, which can be used to send the images to a command vehicle, for example. The breathing apparatus are held on a pull-out in equipment room 3.
Automatic functions such as the Target Memory System (TMS) for repeating tracks that have been traveled once or the automatic retrieval of the rescue cage (ARF) from hidden cage positions make it easier to control the B45FA 2.0; a vertical rescue system (VRS) automatically holds the arm set vertically over a point. In order to be able to use the aerial rescue platform as a crane, there are lifting eyes on the cage arm joint (2,000 kg) and on the cage (500 kg).
Professional fire brigade
The state of Baden-Württemberg, represented by the district fire chief Adrian Wibel, supports this measure financially"
"We are happy about the new technical equipment," said Ralf-Jörg Hohloch, head of the fire and disaster control office and commander of the Freiburg fire brigade. He heads the professional fire brigade and the 18 emergency departments of the voluntary fire brigade with over 1,200 members and more than 650 active workers who complete an average of 2,800 missions per year.
“This supraregional procurement measure is not only important for Freiburg, but also for Waldshut-Tiengen, Lörrach, Emmendingen, Ortenau and the entire Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district. The state of Baden-Württemberg, represented by the district fire chief Adrian Wibel, supports this measure financially. ”
