Latvia's fire service shows off its new firetrucks

The State Fire and Rescue Service (VUGD) has received the first 11 of 58 specialized vehicles - fire tankers, VUGD reported on March 14.

They are 4x4 Scania trucks equipped with modern firefighting and rescue equipment and the new CP28 command cabin with six seats.

The cabins are equipped with features tailored specifically for emergency work, making them ergonomic and meeting high safety and quality standards. The easily adaptable cabin layout and climate control system allow firefighters to easily prepare for any deployment for firefighting and rescue operations, the VUGD said.

These first 11 Scania fire tankers will soon be on the road in Rīga and the Rīga region.

"The State Fire and Rescue Service continues the renewal of its fleet. The new Scania fire tankers are a very important addition that will significantly improve the response capabilities of the fire departments in Riga and other cities later this year," said Aleksandrs Politika, Chief of the Technical Service Department of the State Fire and Rescue Service.

A total of 58 Scania fire tankers will be delivered to VUGD units across Latvia this year.
