ATAC Roma is increasing the fire safety of its bus fleet together with Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection

Since September 2018 ATAC Roma (Azienda per la mobilità del Comune di Roma) is increasing the fire safety of their bus fleet together with Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection. The project consists of retrofitting 400 buses by installing fire suppression systems in the engine compartments of the buses until April 2019.

“We are very proud to work closely with ATAC to provide sustainable and reliable solutions to potential fire hazards. Dafo Vehicle’s fire safety mitigation strategy is to make sure that ATAC operates at the front line of vehicle fire safety engineering with less downtime and secured business continuity”, says Marcello Sanchez, Business Manager, Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection.

“We work very fast with the good assistance of ATAC in order to finalize the project before the upcoming hot summer. A tested and certified Fire Suppression System in combination with a reliable fire detection system, such as Dafo Vehicle’s, is the best first line of response in case of an emergency such as at a thermal incident”, says Laura Rossi, Sales Manager, CEDISS – local Italian Partner of Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection.


Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection AB supplies fire detection and suppression systems for buses and coaches, mining and construction equipment, forestry and waste handling equipment as well as material and cargo handling. For further information, please visit www.dafo-vehicle.com.
