Volvo exhibits high-spec fire appliance with a Cobra at ESS September 2016

Volvo Trucks will be exhibiting a special 12-tonne gvw FL-240 fire appliance later this month at the Emergency Services Show (NEC, Birmingham; 21-22 September).

The 3.8m-wheelbase vehicle features the latest Cobra high-pressure, ‘cold cut’ fire extinguisher system, with 100% recyclable co-polymer, plastic bodywork by Strong’s Plastic Products.

The Cobra system uses a mixture of water and cutting agents, delivered at very high pressures via a nozzle system mounted on a lance, carried and directed by the firefighter.
