Feuerwehr Poberschau Mercedes LF16-TS

This "Löschgruppenfahrzeug" was build in 1990 by Ziegler. The 16 stands for 1600 litre pump performance and TS for an extra board "Tragkraftspritze" (portable pump).
The truck did not carry any water and the pump is on the frontside, of the car, mounted.

True, but don't forget they have had a lot of practice, ever since Adolf's government introduced the blue lights half a century before this LF16TS was built, and insisted they were properly installed - and who would argue with that?

This pumper (or an identical unit) is still on the roster, along with a newer Vario portable pump carrier with a 500 liter first aid tank and hosereel system and a personnel van.

The operational staff number 38 unpaid volunteers - and the company responds to around fifteen alarms a year in this village with about 2, 000 inhabitants...
