NFA RECEIVES LARGEST FIRE TRUCK

FIRES have proven detrimental not only to the lives of families who lose their homes or property but on the economy as a whole.

Minister for Local Government, Housing and Community Development, Hon. Premila Kumar, said this as she handed over a 20,000 litre water tanker fire truck to the National Fire Authority.

In the 2019-2020 National Budget, NFA was allocated $1 million in capital grant for the procurement of essential fire equipment, fire trucks and apparatus kits to effectively equip firefighters during emergency operations.
