The Japan Firefighters Association donated 10 mobile units to the General Corps of Volunteer Firefighters of Peru (CGBVP), the Andean country's Foreign Affairs Ministry reported.
The donation was officially received by Peruvian Ambassador to Japan Harold Forsyth and immediately shipped to Callao Port in Peru.
These actions were also supported by the Japanese Government's Official Development Assistance (ODA) section and the aforementioned firefighter association.
It must be noted these highly-efficient firefighting units —such as water tenders and ambulances— will significantly improve Peruvian firefighters' working conditions when extinguishing fires, as well as their emergency response skills.
The contribution also included a wide range of firefighter equipment
like helmets, uniforms, boots, hoses, and other essential tools.
