In France, the road rescue vehicle (VSR), or road rescue vehicle (FSR), is a van specializing in road accidents.
In some types of VSR, the propulsion engine supplies the necessary energy (compressor for hydraulic tools, lancet pump, electricity). But in most cases, the VSR is equipped with a portable or fixed generator that delivers electrical power for the mat, and / or hydraulic power for cutting tools.
The VSR can easily be recognized:
To its rolling shutters arranged on the sides;
To its gyromat (closed during the journey): it is a metallic mat surmounted by a rotating beacon, and equipped with three spotlights that illuminate the site (cone of light).
