Emergencies can happen anywhere1/1/18
Svanesund, Sweden: the west coast island of Orust is like anyplace – emergencies happen. For the fire brigade, having the right training, equipment and preparation is vital for safety and protection. That’s why the small fire station in Svanesund carries out drills involving controlled fires. But sometimes just getting to the site of a fire can be a challenge, especially here where they operate along the entire coastline of the island. Just ask Mats Gustavsson, team leader. It takes a truck that is reliable and robust enough to go where roads don’t. After all, it’s urgent; lives could be at stake. With the Volvo FMX crew cab, customised to their specific needs, Mats and his team can get to hard-to-access places and the boats down at the dock.
