The Ehingen fire service conducts practical tests on driver's cabs and crane cabs

Crane manufacturer Liebherr is including a rescue sheet with its new wheeled mobile cranes to help emergency service personnel effect a rescue in the event of a traffic accident.

The rescue sheet is mounted inside the cab on the wall behind the driver's seat and provides information about the vehicle's structure and the best places to cut the bodywork open. Fire service and recovery personnel can rescue people more quickly and safely using this tool, the manufacturer said.

The rescue sheet also shows details of the relevant substances on the crane, for example, fuel and oils, their hazard class, volumes and precise location, a spokesperson added.

The sheet was developed by a project team at Liebherr-Werk Ehingen and the local fire service department to make it easier for recovery personnel to rescue crane drivers after traffic accidents or accidents on sites.
