The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Iveco light van PC3 Paris Fire department
This light truck is used by the BSPP, firefighters from Paris, as mobile headquarters during major operations. The letters "PC" is translated elsewhere by HQ. The number 3 indicates that the vehicle depends on the third fire group, based in Courbevoie-La Défense, which manages the entire western third and southwest of Paris and its suburbs. Each group has about two fire trucks of this type. In addition to the BSPP has similar vehicles for special missions such as bombings, airplane crashes, or derailment of trains or subways. Then they are called PC-DSM (DSM = Directeur des Soins Médicaux or in english Care Medical Directors) and those involved in this reinforcement vehicles PC already.
