Video: Rescue in Paris, France at Apartment Fire Using Pompier Ladders

My first thought was the use of pompier ladders is exquisite. My second thought was I wish I paid attention in French class to know what this firefighter is saying. However, you can get a lot out of the video even if you don’t understand French. The fire is from 2012.

    So when can we get these ladders back in my department? I cannot think of a building in first in that would need them, but they could prove useful elsewhere in the city.

    We had them in Chile in the 90s. I remember training a similar evolution with roof wooden ladder.
