Volvo FL Fire Appliance

Fire Services

At 15 tonnes the Volvo FL is the light, compact water tender ideal for working in rural areas, towns and cities. With its '6 speed' Allison box and compact size matched with a choice of 260 or 290hp engine the FL can nip in and around city centre traffic with the driver fully focussed on the 'shout'. Running on 19.5” wheel and tyres the FL has a low step entry and a low centre of gravity.

Now with Volvo’s New Fire Concept for building fire trucks, you can order the FL complete with crew cab, fire pump, bodywork and even final fitting out chosen from a menu of pre-defined layouts.

Based on the Volvo FL L 15/16 tonne chassis, this special Volvo is supplied with a full all steel 4-door crew cab with space for up to 4 crew in breathing apparatus and a further 2 to 4 persons including the driver. For long service life and maximum protection the cab is supplied in Agra red direct from the factory.
