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

Brandweer Kapellen Belgium Unimog
Outside Kapellen (Belgium) you can find a forest. To handle fires inside this terrain you need special vehicles. This Unimog 1100 is such a vehicle. It has been refurbished by the Belgium firm Dias. The Fire brigade of Kapellen is not the first owner of this truck. In 1983 the Dutch fire brigade of Lelystad bought this car. The bodywork was built by Doeschot-Rosenbauer. In 1997 Lelystad sold this car to the brigade of Kapellen.
