A Chinese company has provided 52 well-equipped fire-trucks to Karachi for enhancing the city’s fire-fighting capacity. This batch of fire-trucks is different from the traditional fire-fighting vehicles, which can only stop and spray water. Until now, Karachi had only 14 operational fire-trucks, as 30 trucks were not operational due to technical issues.
