On our last full day in Spain, Dorothy and I took a 20 minute walk to the Parque de Bomberos Sur, one of two Granada fire stations. We received a warm welcome from the on-duty bomberos which included an offer to pull all of the trucks out for photos. Though I would have gladly photographed close to a dozen vehicles at the station, Dorothy suggested that five was probably enough of an imposition.
One of the most interesting units was their adaptation of a small, compact Fiat Panda to allow two firefighters access through all but the narrowest of streets in the centuries old sections of the city.
The first-due engine and aerial have the updated striping design. A relatively new Magirus 39M aerial on a Scania chassis and an iturri pumper using a Mercedes Atego chassis.
I grabbed quick shots of two other trucks that weren’t pulled out, one of which is their heavy rescue and the other a tanker with pump and roll that features a roof turret.
This is an off-road tanker made by Rosenbauer on a Unimog chassis.
The last truck was a small brush unit or mini-pumper built around a Land Rover chassis.
Our sincere thanks go out to Jose and the others who came out and spent time with us. Gracias Jose, mantenerse a salvo.
Your photos are excellent and bring back many wonderful memories of our experience! Thank you for this!
It was great meeting you and Dorothy!
Kindest personal regards,
