The municipality of Tivat has announced a public invitation to purchase a firefighting hydraulic platform for extinguishing fires and rescues at a height, with a platform - a working bench of minimum 27 meters tall. The estimated value of the tender is 100,000 euros with VAT.

It is a select fire truck that will be used to complete the Tivat Protection and Rescue Service (SZS) fleet. According to the conditions from the public invitation, the horizontal reach of the basket is a minimum 17 meters, carrying capacity 400 kilograms, and an aluminum auxiliary staircase leads to the basket along the hydraulic bridge.

"This is a firefighting vehicle and rescue at high altitudes in multi-storey buildings, roofs and the like. The hydraulic platform we are purchasing will be the first vehicle of this type in Montenegro," said the head of SZS Tivat Zoran Barbic yesterday. The vehicle must include, among other things, a fire extinguisher on the platform, a power generator, a smoke fan, a high-pressure hose and a compressed air tank, two sets of breathing devices, a wood saw chain, a hydraulic winch and two reflectors. It is necessary to have an annual service for the current year, and the offer must include staff training. The public tender will be closed on April 15th, and the decision on the selection of the most favorable bid will be made within 60 days.

Last year through public tenders, SZS obtained a new vehicle for narrow streets and for initial fire extinguishing with two separate new systems for extinguishing with foam and compressed foam. For this purpose, 59,206 euros were spent, while the volunteer firefighter company "Krtoli" used the fire vehicle with a capacity of 7,000 liters of water. For these needs, the Municipality has allocated EUR 14,889.

In 2018, SZS Tivat had a total of 257 activities in the field.
