THE city government has purchased 12 brand new Isuzu fire trucks and are up for distribution to the Zamboanga City Fire District to improve emergency response.
The purchase and distribution of the fire trucks is in line with Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar’s commitment to security and public safety.
Dr. Elmeir Apolinario, City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) chief, said the 4x2 six-wheeler fire trucks have a capacity of 3,000 liters each and are all Euro 4 compliant diesel fed-machines.
Apolinario said the newly-acquire fire trucks will boost the firefighting capability as well as augment the present equipment of the ZCFD.
He added it is the mayor’s desire to undertake programs and projects that will make Zamboanga City more resilient and more progressive. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
