Scania Group Press Release  /  January 7, 2020

The Upper Austrian Provincial Fire Brigade, Landes-Feuerwehrverband Oberösterreich, has recently begun using a Scania Interlink HD coach for logistical and tactical operations. The coach serves as a mobile command post and staff unit as well as a transport vehicle.

“For over three decades, we have used a coach for transporting passengers and for accident and disaster relief operations,” says Fire Inspector Markus Mayr, Head of the Civil Protection Department of Landes-Feuerwehrverband Oberösterreich.

In addition to standard features, the coach is equipped with blue light bars, blue flashing lights and a siren. However, the vehicle’s speed has been limited to 110 km/h.

The Interlink coach has 35 seats and four tables, which if needed can easily be removed via a quick release mechanism. It also has a kitchenette, toilet and luggage room.

“Replacing the bus with five to six smaller vehicles was out of the question,” says Mayr.

“An important consideration was to obtain a spacious layout. This is definitely the case with the Scania coach.”
