Turkey Side Mangavat

This Renault watertender I saw in Turkye. The vehicle is stationed at te top of a mountain. The fire fighters are stationed there for 25 !! days. After this period they are 5 days off. In the winter months they are free of duty.

This example of rural firefighting staffing is by no means unique. Several countries employ wildland firefighters on a seasonal basis during the fire season, both as paid firefighters and as volunteers. This practice is commonplace around the Mediterranean and in some parts of the USA.

In the winter months do they relocate this appliance elsewhere ?
