People are encouraged to download the application and work together with the Department of Fire Services in fire safety activity.
The Department of Fire Services aims to protect the lives and property of the people in the state and perform fire prevention, safety and rescue and service for environmental hazards.
The department enhanced its capacity and tried to meet the needs, with a fleet of Fire trucks and equipment made in Poland. Every person must help prevent fire. — Nyein Thu (MNA)/GNLM
