Railway heavy rescue[edit] In addition to traditional fire brigades and rescue departments, tram or railway companies may have their own heavy rescue squads specialized in responding to tram or train wrecks including derailments.[4][5] For example, railway rescue squads may carry specialized equipment for railway crashes, like heavy hydraulic jacks, heavy truck-mounted cranes for lifting and moving derailed locomotives and train cars, and equipment for capping leaking tank cars.[6]


Hazardous materials[edit] Heavy rescue vehicles can also be outfitted specifically as hazardous material response vehicles. In this role, they carry the necessary specialized equipment to respond to and deal with hazardous material incidents. Apart from a pump and tank(s) for water and/or foam, they will carry things like chemical protection suits, decontamination supplies, material for absorption of chemicals, and supplies to plug leaks in storage tanks.
