Port of Mombasa has acquired a state-of-the-art fire rescue truck.
This addition to their existing fleet of three firefighting and suppression trucks increases the port’s total fire suppression capacity significantly.
The newly procured vehicle comes with an impressive 12,000-litre total capacity and is equipped with a fire monitor, demonstrating its readiness for rapid response to fire and emergency incidents.
Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) noted in their announcement that the advanced truck has the ability to pump 7200L of water per minute for effective fire containment.
Its enhanced maintenance and suspension system adds to its overall efficiency, making it a valuable addition to the port’s emergency management fleet.
Given the high-risk environments of port facilities like oil terminals, KPA has heavily invested in modernizing its incident management equipment to ensure prompt containment and response to emergencies.
