Yesterday evening, I visited the Airport Security Service of Geneva airport (Service de Sécurité de l’Aéroport – SSA in French) with my firefighters team. It was very interesting, Their needs are very different than ours, so their fire equipment is also very different. The most impressive is their fire trucks :

  • Weight : 38 tons
  • Water capacity : 10 thousand litres
  • Foam capacity : 1’200 litres
  • Throw : 5’300 litres/min
  • Engine Power : 1’000 hp
  • Max Speed : 140 km/h

I was lucky, because I could see a demonstration of this fire truck. So you can find a small movie and few pictures here.
