Addition to the fleet of the erlanger arbeiter-samariter-bund (ASB): the ASB rescue service has received a new command vehicle for emergency services, according to the regional association.
The vehicle will be deployed for missions that require the coordination of several rescue service units – for example, in the case of fires, traffic accidents on the highway, disaster relief operations and large-scale police operations. The 150-hp ford mondeo is equipped with digital radio (which will go into operation in january), LED blue lights, and orange flashing warning lights for securing accident scenes. The new high-visibility concept has been applied to the vehicle – analogous to the bavarian ambulances. "We are pleased with the acquisition of the new vehicle", says ASB rescue service manager robert ziegenfelder. "The number of operations is generally on the rise and the tasks for the operations manager are becoming more and more varied. The vehicle is also a tribute to our employees, who usually perform this service on a voluntary basis during their free time." The mondeo, the only one of its kind in bavaria, replaces an audi A4 that had been in service for eight years.
