S/J PRO­CURES NU 3.7MN DIS­AS­TER RES­CUE VAN.

Business Bhutan - - Money -

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.
