What to do when somebody can no longer leave the house via the stairs? In this case the ambulance personnel asked the fire brigade to come and lend a helping hand. The fire brigade brought a car that can be turned into a tower wagon. In the narrow streets of our neighbourhood that is easier said than done. First extending buttresses need to be installed and there is hardly any room for them in the rows of cars parked on either side of the street. Then the tower itself has to be manoeuvred around a tree towards a window, a job that requires precision.
