The 2nd Rescue Group

The 2nd Rescue Group has basic equipment that is similar to that of the 1st Rescue Group, but it also has additional, heavy-duty equipment. In particular, it makes use of electrical and hydraulic rescue tools. These enable the 2nd Rescue Group to carry out rescue and salvage duties that are more difficult, or those that need to be carried out where the noise or exhaust fumes of combustion motors would endanger the operation. In addition, the 2nd Rescue Group can be enhanced with additional high-power equipment that enables penetration through layers of rubble and even concrete.  On this unit are havy lift bags with a power to lift up material up to 132 tons,  an plasma cut system and  a core drilling mashine. With  this special engines   is it possible to work where other units give up.
