Vehicles used by fire services at airports are usually front-line Rapid Intervention Vehicles or Major Foam Tenders. Sometimes described as Airport Crash Tenders (ACTs), these are otherwise known as Aerodrome Rescue and Fire Fighting Vehicles (ARFFV). They require all-wheel drive high performance chassis, feature pump-and-roll fire fighting capability, and should satisfy the recommendations of ICAO / CAA. For certain markets, Angloco can provide ARFFVs based on suitable high performance commercial chassis.
Airport fire services also operate other supporting vehicles such as Water Tenders, Rescue Vehicles, Hose/Foam Carriers, and First Strike Light Pumping Appliances, and Angloco has produced many examples of these.
