The need for more advanced infrastructure within urban environments is seeing the development of concepts like this firefighting system that enables better navigation through tight city streets.
Designed by Nikita Lebedev and Denis Gorohov, the train sits above buildings and can deliver personnel in a fraction of time in comparison to land-driven vehicles. The train incorporates a series of pods that allow for gear and passengers to be packed within without the need for oversized space within the main compartment.
The firefighting system and emergency train could be implemented into the design of existing cities or new ones to make safety a top priority at all times. As urban areas become more dense, the need for more versatile, compact options will likely become more apparent.
