Nice photo and very nice appliance, it would seem this station at Frankfurt has a large number of vehicles housed there.

Frankfurt probably has the most evolved two-tone paint scheme amongst German fire services. They started adding white paint and striping long before other German cities, and the current paint treatment is certainly quite distinctive.

Many German cities have some very large fire stations. They often house ambulances, command and administrative vehicles, special-purpose units, pods, transporters, trailers and both volunteer company and reserve units, as well as first response fire and rescue appliances.

The largest one I have visited is Tech I in Berlin. This has 54 special-purpose units in addition to front line fire appliances and ambulances. This station and Tech II together house most of Berlin's special purpose equipment.

My record for the largest fire station was the central fire station in Kuwait City. This had 82 bays. Most of them accommodated a huge fleet of tractor-trailer tanker trucks. Because Kuwait has many built up areas without water mains or hydrants, major shuttles of many very large water tank trucks was the only realistic option in the event of large fires - and of course there was no chance of any kind of mutual aid!

The red is not paint! It's reflective tape!
