S/J PROCURES NU 3.7MN DISASTER RESCUE VAN.
To tackle disasters, the disaster management team in Samdrup Jongkhar bought a disaster rescue van at Nu 3.7mn.
Recently, following a heavy downpour, part of the National Pension and Provident Fund colony in Samdrup Jongkhar was flooded with water. A tree’s root had blocked a drain through which a stream flowed. It took the disaster management team about an hour and a half to clear the blockage. But now with the rescue van, it would take the team merely five minutes to cut through the stuck root. The rescue van is equipped with a hydraulic cutter, water tank with a capacity of 300 liters and lighting set among others.
