Dräger Fire and Rescue Trains
When faced with operations on railway bridges, mountains or in tunnels, the limitations of conventional rescue vehicles are soon exposed. This is where the concept of the Rescue Train comes into play. The Rescue Train’s fire, crew and equipment wagons transport your rescue personnel and their equipment straight to the scene of the incident. At the same time as the rescue personnel are battling with the dangers, passengers and the crew can be evacuated into the protected rescue wagon. This can then be used again by the rescue services.
All the wagons are gas-tight and have an independent breathing air supply that maintains positive pressure. This allows rescue services and rescued persons to stay in the wagon safely for hours without protective masks. Furthermore, it is also possible to stabilise and provide initial medical care at the scene for those with serious injuries. Positive pressure technology, personnel airlocks with smoke extraction, and multi-level smoke retention systems significantly reduce the risk of smoke infiltrating as people enter the wagons. The large capacity of the air reservoirs can also be used to fill breathing apparatus.
A thermal imaging camera provides clear visibility, even in an extremely smoky environment. Gas and temperature sensors inside and outside warn of potential risks in good time. The most important data is shown on the integrated monitors, thus making it easier to coordinate the mission. This makes the Rescue Train the ideal instrument for fires in tunnels and incidents involving hazardous material.
All wagons are set up according individual specifications: size, equipment and technology are adapted to meet your requirements. Thanks to a modular vehicle concept, the Rescue Train can be adapted to suit each mission with minimal effort.
