Rugged, steep terrain, changing winds, no water source anywhere to be found, glaring heat, unpredictable flames devouring everything in their path: What may sound like a scene from a disaster movie is actually a thoroughly real forest fire. And thus the ideal scenario for Magirus vehicles, with the many extreme capabilities they need to facing an overpowering opponent. Single-tyre all-wheel chassis variants and elastic superstructure mounting make them extremely agile off-road, robust self-protection facilities make them extremely secure – and high-performance extinguishing technology makes them extremely successful. In the future, forest fires will rage in increasingly large numbers and sizes. And with us you’ll be extremely well prepared.
In recent years forest fires have increased in frequency and impact; we can assume that this trend will continue with the present development towards climate change. The last few years have clearly shown that global warming leads to an increased risk of forest fires. Working together with fire brigades around the world Magirus has developed vehicles and technologies for handling this risk and optimally equipping fire brigades.
