During the upcoming the 122nd French Firefighters' National Convention, Renault will be be displaying its new additions to its firefighting lineup.

Renault Trucks will be exhibiting a broad selection from its Fire and Rescue offering: vehicles from 2.8 to 32 tons, featuring better maneuverability, enabling firefighters to reach the site of emergency situations under all circumstances in urban and rural areas, as well as in hard to access locations, according to the company.

The new features Renault Trucks is offering on this range include new chassis layouts for the Fire Tenders. These free up space along the left and right side members, meeting firefighters’ needs by significantly increasing storage space for their equipment. Visitors will also be able to see the new Renault Trucks K crew cab version, a model available in XL (6 seats) and XXL (8 seats) versions. Finally, Renault Trucks will also be showing a Renault Master Public Transport with a new Euro 6 engine in a four-wheel-drive version, according to the company.

Five vehicles will be on display:

  • Renault Trucks D 4×2 Fire tender.
  • Renault Trucks D 4×4 Forest Fire Tender.
  • Renault Trucks D 4×4 Rural Fire Tender.
  • Renault Trucks K 6×6 XL crew cab (6 seats).
  • Renault Master 4×4 Public Transport.

The Renault Master, Renault Maxity, Renault Trucks 2m and 2.1m cab are designed for rescue operations in urban environments. In its 4×4 version, the D 2.1 can operate in rural or forest environments, backed up when necessary by vehicles from the C and K ranges. Their obstacle clearing capacity, high ground clearance and outstanding pulling power enable them to reach the most hard to access locations, according to the company.
