A new water tower fire truck arrived in Fangchenggang on the morning of May 10.
Purchased with the loans from the United States, the fire truck has an operational height of 60 meters, the highest of any fire truck in Southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
Fangchenggang Firehouse Branch held a ceremony to test the truck and trained the staff in using the new truck.
With Fangchenggang's rapid development, more high-rise buildings are appearing. Ordinary fire trucks are unable to deal with fires in high-rise buildings.
The new high-jetting fire truck further improved the fire-fighting equipment and enhanced the fire suppression ability of Fangchenggang's fire brigade, especially for high-rise buildings and huge constructions such as oil tanks and warehouses.
