City receives four new fire engines

FIREPOWER: Demonstration of new fire engines and firefighters' capability to douse a fire.

EXECUTIVE Mayor Cllr Herman Mashaba, acting EMS Chief Mhlengi Makhubalo and MMC for Public Safety Cllr Michael Sun handed four new fire engines to the Department of Public Safety’s Emergency Management Services on June 13.

The delivery of the fire engines forms part of the department’s efforts to replace ageing fleet at various stations.

Two fire engines are newly purchased and two have undergone full refurbishment, bringing them up to a standard that is as good as new.

One fire engine will be allocated to each of the following fire stations: Florida, Lawley, Ivory Park and Eldorado Park.

Earlier this year, the City’s EMS also handed over one new fire engine to each of the following stations: Fairview, Jabulane and Cosmo City.

Residents of Johannesburg have over the years raised concerns about the City’s ability to secure their safety in the event of an increased number of fire outbreaks.

Sun said, “I can happily assure residents that through the procurement and possession of these fire engines, the Department of Public Safety will ensure that the City is able to alleviate much of the pressure that has been placed on our Emergency Management Services. Acquiring these fire engines forms part of the City’s commitment to building safe communities and therefore a safer city.”
