Under an agreement between the Mongolian and Austrian Governments, “Rosenbauer International AG”, is to supply 28 firefighting vehicles including 16 modern firetrucks which are suitable to Mongolia’s harsh climate. Additional equipment is also being provided. Established in 1866, Austria’s “Rosenbauer International AG” is one of the world’s three leaders in producing fire service vehicles.
The vehicles are being supplied to Mongolia from “Rosenbauer International” South Korea and will be delivered to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). The vehicles will be sent to the 21 provinces and also the Chingeltei, Sukhbaatar, Bayanzurkh and Songinokhairkhan districts of Ulaanbaatar. The amount the Mongolian Government paid in 2015 was MNT 4.6 billion.
In recent years, the supply of modern disaster prevention and mitigation equipment has increased. Last year, NEMA received MNT 20 billion in state funding for obtaining modern vehicles and technology.
