Hong Kong is a big city.
With fire and ambulance stations like any other city.
But the streets of Hong Kong’s outlying islands are far narrower.
So they use miniature fire trucks.
And ambulances – but operating out of full sized fire stations.
Quite the contrast!
Footnote – motorcycle paramedics
The Hong Kong Fire Services Department provides ambulance services in Hong Kong, and as well as conventional road vehicles, also has motorcycle paramedics.
Who can dart through traffic.
To get to emergencies quicker.
The Fire Services Department calls their miniature ambulances ‘Village Ambulances‘.
They also have types of miniature fire truck – ‘Mini Fire Van‘, ‘Mini Equipment Carrier‘ and ‘Mini Rescue Van‘.
Each outlying island fire station is equipped with one of each type, which are deployed together to emergencies so that a full complement of tools and equipment is available.
