Turning tools of war into tools of assistance

Turning tools of war into tools of assistance

Everything started as some of our volunteers turned their childhood dream of becoming firefighters into reality. They collected their first experiences through local voluntary firefighter brigades, later integrating their passion for special vehicles to develop a fleet of special vehicles able to transport rescue units and equipment into difficult to access disaster zones. We started turning military tanks into rescue vehicles, using them to extinguish forest fires, break ice on frozen rivers to save villages from flooding, evacuate people from flooded communities and much more.. These unique vehicles are adapted to use in rescue operations and are able to master muddy or flooded terrain, as well as sand. New ideas for their tunning and upgrades pop up constantly as we gather more experience in missions. The scale of our activities thus encompasses renovation and refurbishment of old military vehicles, trucks and tanks into modern rescue tools, but also supporting surrounding communities in becoming more resilient to disasters and teaching children how to protect themselves and their loved ones in emergencies. We train our units and exercise our modules alongside other professional and voluntary rescue services in order to be able to effectively support intervention in emergencies with unique and unmatched resources, enhancing the mobility of rescue units, the accessiblity of their services and the effectiveness of their intervention. The core mission of our voluntary association is to protect lives, health and property in emergencies. More info about us at www.dhztt.sk :)
