The Unimog proves to be a hero during the floods in Australia.
In New South Wales, Australia, six extreme off-road Unimog provide support during floods. The State Emergency Service (SES) relies on the Unimog U 4023 models as robust rescuers in times of need. With their extreme off-road capability, they are ideally suited for flood operations. The six Unimog U 4023 can now prove this in the face of the forces of nature.
Valuable rescue helpers.
Providing rapid assistance in the event of natural disasters – through evacuations, medical transports or logistical support for remote communities. There is a lot for the Unimog to do at the State Emergency Service, especially in terms of flood protection. The Unimog also assist in transporting fodder for remote livestock, or in search and rescue operations in the Australian bush. Three of the six newly acquired vehicles are already in use, helping where environmental disasters rage.
With the extreme off-road Unimog U 4023, SES volunteers can make their way through even the most difficult terrain. The rescue team does not have to compromise on payload: the double cab holds up to six passengers, and the flatbeds also carry heavy equipment that is essential for disaster relief.
Andrew Assimo, Mercedes-Benz Trucks Australia Pacific Director, is very enthusiastic about the new vehicles: “The SES does very valuable work for our region. Therefore, it is particularly rewardig that they have chosen the Unimog U 4023 for such an important task,” he says. “We know that the unique capabilities of the Unimog will support SES crews in helping people in extreme situations.”
