With the purpose of transmitting the world’s top “disaster control know-how of the SMG” to cities overseas, the Seoul Metropolitan Fire & Disaster Headquarters have been providing neighboring countries, such as those in Middle Asia, with used emergency vehicles since 2012.
○ A total of 127 emergency vehicles have been given away from 2012 to 2018, including ▴ 20 pumpers, ▴ 18 water tank trucks, ▴ 3 chemical fire trucks, ▴ 6 rescue buses, ▴ 73 ambulances, ▴ 1 safety experience truck, and▴ 6 command cars.
This is the first year that Kyrgyzstan will receive emergency vehicles from the SMG. Currently, there are 43,126 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Kyrgyzstan and 1,057 deaths (as of August 25; total population of 6.26 million). As the country is facing difficulties dealing with the infectious disease, the SMG has plans to pass on two ambulances in September, followed by one pumper and one water tank truck later on.
Additionally, the Seoul Metropolitan Fire & Disaster Headquarters will provide the recipient countries with the “COVID-19 Response Video Manual” that is being distributed overseas, as well as “Emergency Vehicle Operation Manual” translated into the target languages.
