Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas II turned over Just last March 14 38 top-of-the-line MAN Rosenbauer fire trucks to different cities nationwide in the presence of Austrian Ambassador Wilhelm Donko, the recipient city mayors, and officers and members of the BFP led by Fire Chief Superintendent Carlito Romero.

“This is very important as we all know our firemen lack equipment and these new fire trucks could boost firefighting capability, particularly in highly urbanized areas,” Roxas said.

Roxas credited the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo for initiating the project to acquire more fire trucks.

Roxas said 11 of the fire trucks will be deployed in Metro Manila and nine trucks each will be sent to other urban areas in Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao.

The fire trucks were built to respond to fires in highly urbanized areas.

Roxas said the 38 Austrian-made Rosenbauer TLF 4000 fire trucks represent half of the 76 units that the government has procured through a soft loan package of about P1.1 billion.

By the way.. you'd ask Where and Who is Rosenbauer AG??

Well; The Rosenbauer Group is one of the world’s three largest manufacturers of fire-service vehicles, based in Leonding, Austria.

here is another demo of the MAN-Rosenbauer TGM-TLF 4000 AT Series from rosenabauer AG which is a  newer lineup with all power options; although our TLF models have 3/4's the features of the latest AT line of rosenbauer TLF,  its a big leap and power upgrade for our reliable BFP firefighters..

In closing the untimely departure of the late secretary Jesse Robredo did go in vain as this is the product of the blood and sweat he has poured thru his good governance of the DILG, may these 70+ units of MAN Rosenbauer TLF fire trucks reminds us all of his leadership and skills that we must put it to use not only in the government but also in our life as well.. so lets take care of it, when it comes thru the road respect the right of way of emergency vehicles, give way for this firetrucks, and lets start not only good fire prevention and control but good governance and orderliness in our country..
