Norway fire engines spark construction issue

Inspectors find that the modern vehicles are just too heavy for the floor of Stavanger’s 60-year-old fire station.



But while this may incense some, personnel at the Lagårdsveien-located facility have decided to park the vehicles outside on the forecourt.

Stavanger Aftenblad also reports that engineering consultancy company Multiconsult has now suggested shoring up the floor underneath, using one support per vehicle wheel.

This will remain in effect until the fire engines are relocated to the new fire station after moving out from the present one in the course of the next two to three years.

“We hope the calculations will be ready before Easter so we can order the supports,” Olav Stredet at municipal firm Stavanger Eiendom, told the publication. “Erecting them is simple job, so the fire engines will be moved back shortly afterwards.”
