Fire Extinguishing Equipment

A few months ago, the residents of Gamgadhi, the district headquarters of Mugu realised that if there was a fire out break, they would lose their houses and property because they did not have any fire extinguishing mechanism. The nearest water supply, a river, is miles away.

Confronted with this likely disaster, Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS), a UMN partner, asked UMN staff to help them address this need. By linking NRCS with the Finnish Embassy, and supporting them to write a funding proposal, the embassy provided NRCS with a grant that allowed them to buy a fire controller water pressure pump.

“We are happy that UMN is also working to bridge us to an external community. Without this, we would not have been able to access the funding needed to implement this disaster reduction programme” says the NRCS Chairperson.
