Fire ladder is a type of firefighting equipment, it constitutes a rotary sliding ladder with hydraulic lifting mechanism, which is mounted on the chassis of a conventional truck or on special truck chassis.
The fire ladder is used in the course of extinguishing fires, rescue operations and emergency recovery works to ensure access of professionals (fire fighting crew, rescue teams) and to deliver the necessary technical equipment and weapons to a certain height. It is also used to evacuate valuable property and victims from the upper floors of buildings, including emergency evacuation with the use of a rescue tube.
Thus, this kind of equipment becomes absolutely indispensable for ensuring safety of the inhabitants of modern cities because it makes it possible not only to get in time to the site of fire extinguishing and rescue operations, but also to save people, whose evacuation in the standard manner (through staircase or fixed ladders) becomes impossible for any reason.
The ladders of these vehicles consist of several sliding knees (most often - from three to six), and the majority have the length in the range of 15 to 65 meters (although there are instances that can be as high as 90 m). At the end of the upper knee, a fire-fighting monitor for supplying fire extinguishing agents and/or a foam generator is fixed. Rotation angle of the ladder basis is usually 360°. To provide the necessary stability in the course of operation, fire ladders are equipped with outriggers.
