A porportionate response

Here is a picture of a fire truck in Amsterdam.

The fire trucks have long extending ladders that will reach up 4-6 floors (which is about the height of the tallest building. They are also very narrow and somewhat short, which allows them to maneouver down narrow and winding streets and alleys.
There is a fireman leaning down in front of the side of the truck, which gives you some idea of how small it is.
