Rescue equipment

Rescue equipment at the Exhibition Paris 1900

Demonstrations of fire rescue equipment. The Sherrer ladder device was particularly noted.

From a window on any floor of a house, an iron ladder can be developed in the event of a fire, which runs from the base to the top and which is usually concealed in the building. Only care must be taken to ensure that the device does not rust.
