Description:
On almost every fire truck in the Netherlands has a roof set available to the firefighter. Once these have to work on height it must be done safely. That's where the roof set is developed for, of which there are various types in circulation by now. Many of the fire department staff know not enough of working with the set, or are insufficiently trained in working with the harnass and roof set.
