These fire tenders are now about 25 years old and there is no proper mechanism for the maintenance of these fire tenders. “SITE Association of Industry requested the federal government to provide fire tenders directly to the Association for taking immediate action in case of fire eruption. Governor Sindh acceded to our request and pledged to provide fire tenders to the Association which has now been fulfilled”, SITE President added.
Abdul Hadi, giving details of action in case of fire incidents in SITE area, stated that in past due to lack of resources, fire department’s response time was quite high. After the addition of new fleet, response time will reduce which will definitely result in saving industries from huge losses.
