Electric cars: they are increasingly appearing in the streets. A trend where the fire department must respond. In episode 4 of Heroes of Here: Through the Fire is the team of Fire brigade Zone Antwerp called for one of the first incidents with an electric car. The new technologies enable the team immediately to a tough test. “Electric cars are not more dangerous than cars on fuel. But in case of fire, you know that you’re there for longer will,” says warrant officer Steven. “New technologies have also for our consequences. We must be continually retrained. Something that yesterday was good, tomorrow it may no longer apply.”
When the roof of a barn collapses, rushes the fire department to the owners to ensure safety. Also that of the cows. Another team pulls out to Merksem, where stone from 30 meters height of the church tower fall. A life threatening situation.
