RETTmobil is the leading European trade fair for emergency services and mobility that takes place 11-13 May 2011. The annual show is a magnet for emergency service workers, paramedics and firefighters, as well as for public authority, local government and trade association personnel looking to learn more about the latest developments and technology in the emergency services sector.
BMW is a regular exhibitor at RETTmobil, where it displays its latest emergency vehicles, all of which are based on current BMW vehicles.
The BMW Group draws on decades of experience in developing and building emergency vehicles for both German and international fire and emergency services. The special-purpose equipment features are designed and integrated in close cooperation with specialists from the relevant authorities and institutions.
All BMW emergency vehicles boast outstanding efficiency, superior power and performance with uncompromising safety, along with reliability unrivalled even by other premium-segment products.
For more than 50 years, BMW has developed emergency vehicles have the provision for the installation of special-purpose equipment that is engineered in from the start of the development process, and production takes place in parallel with production of regular series models. A good example is the integration of the special signal system into the BMW iDrive control system already used on regular BMW production models. That means the warning system can be operated using iDrive, just like the navigation system and other comfort functions.
