    Vienna firemen show off their latest equipment.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'FIRE FIGHTERS OF VIENNA'.

    Vienna, Austria.

    Opening shot shows smartly uniformed firemen standing to attention while one of them blows a bugle.

    We then see the firemen demonstrating their firefighting equipment which includes a huge 120 foot ladder. The ladder is set up and one of the men climbs to the top of it. A fireman abseils down the side of a tower and slides down some canvas to the ground.

    Several men come out of a window in the tower and slide down a canvas 'tunnel' to the bottom. Men also leap from the window onto the canvas held taut by the others.
