The compendium stands for safety made in Germany and is filled to the brim with solutions that offer emergency services maximum safety with optimal handling - because when it comes to human life, seconds can be decisive. The reference work for fire brigades and aid organisations comprises a total of 196 pages and now also offers digital added value: because in addition to the print version of the rescue equipment guidebook, a new, highly functional digital version is available.

"As an innovation and technology leader for access equipment and wheeled containers, we are not only a strong partner for emergency services when it comes to providing advice from person to person, but also in the digital environment. We are proving this now more than ever with the digital added value of the new rescue technology guide. We offer emergency services the opportunity to find the right solution quickly and easily on all channels," says Ferdinand Munk, Managing Director and owner of the Munk Group. As far as digital features are concerned, Munk refers to the many practical tutorials on the YouTube channel of Munk Rettungstechnik or also to the extensive knowledge blog on

"With us, the emergency services can find all the important info for the equipment they need in the field. This applies to rescue platforms and fire brigade ladders just as much as to roll containers for supplies and efficient transport - or even equipment for the appliance room," says Munk. The digital version of the guide is worth its weight in gold, especially because Munk Rettungstechnik is constantly developing its product range together with experienced emergency services personnel: "This way we can provide our customers with updates all year round and ensure that all information is always available on the PC, tablet or smartphone," explains Munk.

On 196 pages, the quality manufacturer from Bavaria shows, among other things, its extensive range of proven rescue platforms and versatile fire brigade ladders, which are available in versions according to DIN EN 1147 and ÖNORM F4047. These include multifunctional, rope pull, plug-in as well as hook ladders. The company's toolboxes are also available fully equipped - with tool sets according to DIN in premium quality as well as high-quality foam inserts. In addition, Munk Rettungstechnik dedicates a separate chapter in the new reference book to equipment for appliance rooms, including a ladder test stand, and provides information about its comprehensive range of services and seminars.

Modern transport logistics: Mobile containers

Munk Rettungstechnik offers a variety of mobile container models in its standard range, which can also be planned and equipped individually according to the wishes of the rescue forces. In addition to universal applications, the rescue forces are also equipped for specific requirements in the field of transport logistics, such as breathing apparatus, hoses or black/white separation. The roll containers have a high-quality finish and are robust. Thanks to the new off-road system, they can now be easily and quickly converted for off-road use.

Own location for growing business

"Fire brigades and aid organisations can always rely on our many years of know-how, our full top service and 100% 'Safety - made in Germany'," says Ferdinand Munk. In order to continuously develop the growing business sector, the Munk Group has therefore invested ten million euros and inaugurated the new rescue technology location in Leipheim on a 30,000 square metre site in the summer of 2021. Munk Rettungstechnik offers a 15-year guarantee on its series products for fire, rescue and disaster relief made in Germany.
