The highest fire brigade ladder in France is tried out in front of Notre Dame in Paris.
Titles read: "The Super Ladder".
Various shots of the Paris Fire Brigade trying out their new ladder, the highest of its kind in France. It is opened out, telescopically, before Notre Dame, and a fireman climbs up it to sit on the very top - level with the upper storeys of the cathedral. The ladder is then electrically folded back down to the fire engine at quite a speed - no sign of the fireman! A crowd of people watch from the ground.
