Moscow

The Moscow Fire Department is in charge with the Fire protection of a population of over 10 millions inhabitants. Even though nowadays the majority of the new fire trucks are of western technology, the Fire Department still runs most of its fleed of russian products. Especially trucks from ZIL, Kamaz and Ural are widely used. The standard fire respond unit is based on one 30 m ladder truck and two pumpers which are all mounted on ZIL. Kamaz bodies are mostly being used for heavy trucks such as Bronto Skylifts, ladders or heavy pumpers. Ural produces a heavy rescue pumper. You will be disappointed if you expect a lot of special trucks in Russia. Russia is most likely the only country on earth that knows a certain limitation on trucks. The standardization in the former Soviet Union was being pushed for years preventing new developments. Nowadays the Russians use more and more ladder trucks from Magirus and elevating platforms built by Bronto Skylift.
