I really like these fire appliances the Dutch fire service use with regards to stowage and access to the equipment they carry. Thanks for sharing.

Some German, Swedish, Polish and Belgian fire apparatus bodybuilders have also developed very creative stowage solutions in recent years. The ergonomics of how items are stored are sometimes quite amazing!

These ideas are beginning to turn up on North American, French and Japanese trucks, too, and these days it seems likely that such good ideas will be adopted much more quickly all over the World.

My personal favorites are the powered roof racks for ground ladders and suction hoses, pioneered in the US and now commonplace in the Netherlands, Japan and Germany - and the one-man hose carts, originally mostly found in Scandinavia, Germany and France, and now standard (in various shapes and sizes) in Japan.

As the equipment load on each individual vehicle will almost certainly continue to increase, with fire services taking on more and more diverse tasks, there will always be new challenges in fitting everything in so that it can be accessed quickly.
