Another use for a fire engine in Spain

Fire engine plowing snow in the East of Spain

Fire engine plowing snow in the East of SpainWhen we wrote about a fire engine near Jaen, Spain being used for purposes other than suppressing wildland fires, we asked for other photos of engines multi-tasking. Jesús Morcillo i Julià sent us the photo above with this description:

I’m a wildland firefighter in Valencian Community, in the East of Spain.

The service where I work is “Unitat de Brigades d’Emergència de la Generalitat Valenciana” or simply UBE.

The UBE is the essencial emergency service where valencian wildland firefighters are assigned and our mission is wildland firefighting and other emergency actions, mainly in the administrative area of the Valencian Country.

As you can see, during the off-season we and our vehicles are destinated to restore normalcy after the frequent snowstorms.

I hope you like the pic. It was taken in the Penyagolosa’s Natural Park, a really beautiful spot.

That’s all. Congrats for your very interesting website.

Thanks Jesús.
