Enugu Government has approved the purchase of five Rapid Intervention Vehicles from John Holt Plc. Briefing journalists after the meeting of the State Executive Council (EXCO), Commissioner for Information, Nnanyelugo Chidi Aroh, said council approved the immediate purchase of five Rapid Intervention Vehicles in keeping with the state government’s commitment to protect lives and property of people of the state.
He explained that the customized intervention vehicles with emergency rescue facilities will be purchased directly from John Holt Nig. Plc, to tackle fire, health and accident emergency challenges in the state “in line with the state government’s sustained commitment to provide for the safety of Enugu people.
“These come in small trucks and are very important because they make shorter runs, get quicker to emergency scenes and more difficult places”, Aroh said.
The commissioner further said that the intervention vehicles would complement the five firefighting trucks procured earlier by Gov. Ugwuanyi’s administration for the five newly constructed fire service stations across the state, which was formally handed over to the state fire service by the governor.
