Delhi airport inducts turn-table ladder for fire-fighting

The Delhi International Airport has enhanced its fire-fighting capacities with the acquisition of a sophisticated turn-table ladder (TTL), the first of its kind in the country. The TTL can be raised to a height of about 32 metres and can be used in both horizontal and vertical directions. It is very useful in rescuing people trapped in tall structures such as high rise buildings and in large aircraft such as the Airbus A-380. The rescue cage of the TTL can hold loads up to 200kg and provide stretcher support and four side accesses. Because of its easy manoeuvrability, it can be used in congested spaces and also for other applications. The Delhi Airport has 11 Rosenbauer fire tenders, each with a capacity of 12,500 litres of water and 1,500 litres of foam compound.
