Mercedes-Benz Unimog: made for tough terrain.
Wherever optimum driving characteristics are required for firefighting in difficult terrain, the extremely agile off-road Unimog is in its element. This applies to water tenders fighting forest fires and logistics vehicles dealing with floods. And in addition, there is a wide variety of equipment variants and bodies that make the compact, robust Unimog a fully-fledged operational vehicle.
Exemplary operation in Des Landes, Southern France.
Be it sand, boulders or mud - with the Unimog U 5023, the crew of Sapeurs Pompiers can reach their destination even under the toughest conditions.

Fighting forest fires on the Mediterranean, flood alarm on the Danube and Elbe, hurricanes and fierce autumn storms all over Europe, plus hail or earthquakes: the number of natural disasters is on the rise worldwide – accompanied by an increasing need for large-scale operations and special deployments by fire brigades and emergency services. Emergency forces are faced with greater and greater challenges – and so are their vehicles.
No other vehicle is able to approach its performance potential under the worst imaginable conditions as the Unimog can: transporting crews, materials, tools and implements. Different power take-offs also allow the outfitting and operation of fire-fighting centrifugal pumps, winches, generators, hydraulic tippers or loading cranes. This makes the Unimog the best vehicle for fire-fighting.
