Explanation:
Can't help you with the translations, but this URL is the website of the German firebrigade. It's dicussion forum to be precise. In the left hand column, you'll see a discussion thread started by someone looking for a German-English fire-fighting list. One of the answers he gets, gives a trilingual (English-German-French) terminology book published by the association of insurers. Even if this itself is no use to you, you could try posting your request there.
Hope this helps
