Aschaffenburg, 19 March 2016.
Under the direction of the Großostheim Fire Service, various fire departments from across the region carried out joint emergency training drills in the bayernhafen container terminal. Around 10 teams and their vehicles used the existing container stacks in the terminal and, in particular, the giant overhead crane to perform a number of drills: from the correct positioning of the turntable ladder to rescuing from different heights; and from water rescue and salvage to extracting water from the River Main. Training to become a turntable ladder operator was also on the itinerary for a number of firefighters.
