A week ago Renault gives to the Paris firefighter brigade the keys to a Twizy prototype adapted to firefighters' needs. This Renault Twizy fire prototype could be the world's smallest fire truck.
The Renault Twizy prototype was co-developed by the Paris firefighter brigade. The Renault Twizy prototype car was planned for early actions in front of the arrival of more consequential lifesaving equipment.
For Claire Petit Boulanger, tertiary safety officer at Renault, "This initial prototype is real-life proof of the research and development work carried out together with the emergency services, demonstrating Renault's ability and determination to innovate to meet the needs of firefighters."
Renault and FNSPF (French national firefighter association) signed a partnership agreement on June 21, 2012 to increase their collaborative efforts in fields including technical cooperation and donating vehicles to firefighters for vehicle-extrication training.
