The fire pumpers will be provided under the Acquisition of Fixed Assets Project in the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development

The objective is to increase the fleet and capacity of the JFB to enhance emergency response

Up to December last year, two ambulances, eight emergency command vehicles, six rescue boats, two fire boats, eight water tankers, one box body truck and one utility vehicle were procured to support the operations of the Jamaica Fire Brigade

The project is slated to be completed in March 2022 and is being financed by the Government of Jamaica
