Note the full crew cab. In Turkey most fire services rely heavily on tankers, as hydrants are few and far between in many places.

So the first attendance at a structure fire is usually a pumper, an aerial and a tanker. Because the tanker needs all its space for water - normally around 12, 000 liters or more - it does not have room for a crew cab.

So in Turkey you will often find five or six crew on the pump, another five or six on the ladder, and two or three on the tanker.

Similar manning is to be found on the same group of first turnout units in other Third World countries too, getting the needed numbers of firefighters and the required number of liters of water to the incident together...

But I cannot explain why this ladder is parked in a tandem bay behind what looks like a Unimog rescue truck!

Hi, Rob Johnson

This ladder truck was out of service when I took this photo. It was standing behind the rescue truck.

Also this rescue truck is 6x6x6 GPV heavy rescue truck.
