The only exhibition stand that needed looking up to at the site was the platform fire-truck, known as the "Asia's Highest". According to the exhibitor, the working height of this kind of platform fire-truck can reach up to 68 meters, which can be used for firefighting and rescue in up to 24-floor buildings. This is China's highest self made platform fire-truck and also the highest in Asia, which was successfully developed last year and was displayed for the first time in Guangdong Province.
