Scania Special Purpose

Scania Defense

Fire and rescue

Sudden, demanding, unpredictable. Sometimes the situations you encounter in fire and first response demand that you be all things to all people.

And your vehicles face the same challenge – like a rescue vehicle that is equipped with firefighting, extraction and first-aid equipment. Legendary Scania reliability is part of the equation, of course, but you also gain superior driveability. That means superb driver ergonomics with excellent acceleration, braking and stability – all to make the trip to the assigned task safer, smoother and faster.

Today, Scania has more than 90 years of experience building chassis for firefighting vehicles. In fact, we’re seeing increasing success in major markets around the world, working with many of the world’s leading bodybuilders and equipment suppliers. The broad range of components in the Scania modular system enables operators and bodybuilders to create a vehicle specification that meets very precisely defined needs.
