Hong Kong Fire: Scania 124G Turntable Ladder Engine

Hong Kong Fire: Scania 124G Turntable Ladder Engine
Hong Kong has been a relatively wealthy, if overcrowded, city. Because Hong Kong has so many high-rise buildings, and is surrounded by the South China Sea, its fire-fighting and rescue forces require the state-of-the-art equipment.

The Hong Kong Fire Sevrvices department operates a fleet of specialty engines including aerial turntable ladder, pumper, diving unit, Haz-Mat, hydraulic platform, Snorkel, chemical foam, breathing apparatus and lighting appliances.

This massive 3-axle Scania 124G fire engine/ truck is equipped with a computer-controlled turntable aerial ladder that can reach 52 meter (171 feet) in height. The ladder is attached with a lift and light rescue cage. It also has a modular construction rear body with four lockers, two on each side.
