MARONDERA Municipality recently received three fire tenders that were sourced by Government from Belarus, with the council now expecting to urgently respond to emergencies within Marondera and surrounding areas.
The three emergency vehicles are already in Marondera town.
Marondera Municipality public relations manager Mr Kudakwashe Tapfumaneyi confirmed the development and thanked Government for sourcing the important vehicles which he said will ensure an improved service delivery and timeous response to emergencies.
“Council received three 5000-litre fire tenders courtesy of the government-to-government arrangement between Zimbabwe and Belarus, which was facilitated by President Mnangagwa. The arrival of the fire tenders brings the fleet compliment to five. This follows the acquisition of a new fire tender by the Municipality using internal resources.
“Fire tenders are critical emergency service vehicles which enhance the capacity of council to respond to emergencies. The new acquired fire tenders are part of council’s recapitalisation efforts to improve service delivery through enhanced emergency response capabilities,” Mr Tapfumaneyi said.
Meanwhile, the Municipality is seized with road rehabilitation programme in Marondera and currently, the engineering department is working on roads in Cherutombo suburb.
