Fire protection in Lesvos with silo truck donation!

The practice of donating old silo trucks to Municipalities so that they can be used as storage tanks for firefighting water is not new to us.

A quick look at our files reveals that by 2010 we had donated 50 such silo trucks, which prove to be valuable in the event of fire.

The most recent such action was the donation of two silo trucks/water tanks to the Municipality of Lesvos in 2017 and 2018.

After the necessary alterations were made so that they could function as water tanks, the silo trucks were presented by the Deputy Mayor for Environment, Quality of Life & Civil Protection, Nikos Karassavas. The first one was given to the Volunteer and Solidarity Team “Ambelos” and was placed on the Agiasos-Ambeliko-Plomari national road and the second one was given to the Volunteer Fire Brigade of Gera and was placed at the location “Karionas”, in a wooded area near Lakarnou.

The two tanks shall significantly contribute to the area’s fire protection needs.
