Kidero launches mini fire fighters for slums

Governor Evans Kidero flagged off 12 mini fire brigades on Wednesday to be used in informal settlements within the city.

They are a replacement to fire brigade trucks that are always slow in extinguishing fires in slums because of inability to pass through narrow roads.

Mr Kidero  said the quad bikes will come in handy in places where normal sized vehicles can not access during fire breakouts.

“These four wheeled mini fire brigade have adjustable parts that can be manipulated for them to penetrate such areas thus minimize chances of loss of lives,” said Dr Kidero.

He was speaking in Kibera at the DC grounds where locals gathered to witness the unveiling of the quad bikes fire fighters.
