Mercedes Actros Finland

When I was making a tour in Finland I found this nice Mercedes 1835 Actros Water Tender. It is the fire engine of the city P�ij�t-H�meen. The bodywork is from Finnish firm Saurus.
License plate MYM 452

Hi George,
The year this apparatus was built is 2000. The Olympus C-700 is a digital camera with a 10 x optical zoomlens. Great camera !!

Nice piece of kit this.
I bet it goes like a rocket, given the fact it's got 350 bhp, compared to around 250 bhp for uk pumping appliances.

Would love to see this flying up Micklegate hill in York!

Finland will have new unit ID system whole country. Ambulances and police have to chance also. In Finland have future only 7 emergency center and they can alarm units from other emergency center's area, so there can't be same ID different units.

Now this is HE12 (second WrT in first station of city Heinola) New ID is probably 2RPH4012, 2 is emergency center number, R means Rescue PH is fire department 40 is station number in Päijät-Häme 1 means WrT, because this is second same type vehicle so there is 2 in end.
