The fire team’s emergency response service consists of approximately 150 employees who can operate the new vehicles. Over the past 18 months, all the firefighters have undergone intensive training to ensure that they have the right skills.
Rotterdam and Lelystad
This year, Rotterdam The Hague and Lelystad Airport will also deploy new Rosenbauer crash tenders, three and two respectively. These vehicles are somewhat smaller, however, as smaller aircraft land at these airports. They are six-wheel drive (6×6) vehicles that can hold up to 10,000 litres of water, 1,300 litres of foam and 250 kilos of powder.
Otherwise, the vehicles are virtually the same as those used at Schiphol. This standardisation offers advantages for the maintenance and management of the vehicles, the fire-fighting techniques and of course the education and training of the fire service personnel.
