Emergency services have been heavily represented in Tomica toys for a long time especially police and fire departments, always popular with kids. After countless classic red fire department vehicles TakaraTomy is trying something new and original with this 22nd Kuji collection.
This time the cars will carry the colors of fire fighters uniforms from different groups of the Tokyo Metropolitan Fire Department.
Fire Rescue Task Force
A-one Fire Unit
The Ladder Corps has the difficult task to reach fires in high locations such as tall buildings. Ladder trucks operators in particular need to quickly put their vehicle in the right position for the fire fighters to be able to intervene in the smallest amount of time possible.
Volunteer Fire Corps
The Fire Brigades are composed of part-time fire fighters and volunteers in small or remote locations that do not have a proper Fire Department nearby. They are trained to deal with many situations such as fires, floods and rescues and have the tough task to handle major events until better equipped professionals arrive.
This collection is definitely a smart and fun way to teach the different roles and careers opportunities in fire departments to the young generation. And we get cool looking Tomicas on top of that !
The 22nd Kuji Fire Fighters Collection will be released on March 17th in Japan.
