Compared with fire trucks, all terrain fire truck is more flexible and faster, and can reach places where large fire trucks are not suitable or cannot reach. They can fight alone, fight together with two fire motorcycles, or help fire trucks participate in the fight together.
Design requirements and maintenance of firefighting motorcycles
The design and manufacture of firefighting motorcycles need to meet the requirements of standard XF 768-2008 "Firefighting Motorcycle". The body color should be red, equipped with police sound and light devices; the body frame and other components should ensure firm, uniform, and beautiful welding, and there shall be no mechanical damage and cracks.

Generally, mobile fire pumps, water, foam fire extinguishing devices, dry powder fire extinguishing devices, and fire axes and other firefighting and rescue equipment can be installed on four-wheel fire motorcycles depending on the situation.
After each disaster relief or exercise, the welding connections of the support part of the firefighting motorcycle must be checked, and the supporting stable angles of the rear shock absorber must be checked for any deviation and adjusted in time. In addition, the wear of the brake pads should be checked every 400 kilometers.
